Sky Bet Championship club Bolton Wanderers are considering bolstering their squad with the loan signing of winger Wellington Silva from Arsenal, a club insider from Bolton Wanderers has informed Football League World.
The 22-year-old Brazilian is yet to make his first-team debut for the Gunners, and has had five different loan spells since arriving in north London from Fluminense in 2011.
The Gunners will be keen to now see how Silva would get on in a league as demanding as the Championship, with hope that he can return to Arsenal and challenge for a first-team place.
Wanderers boss Neil Lennon is desperately searching for new recruits before the transfer window closes, after a poor start to the season.
Bolton Wanderers are yet to score a goal this season and followed last weekend’s 0-0 draw over Derby up with a defeat to Burton Albion in the Capital One Cup, and then followed that with a 3-0 defeat against Middlesbrough on Saturday at the Riverside Stadium.
