Bolton Wanderers

The signing of this striker would bolster Bolton Wanderers’ forward options

In their first year back in League One, Bolton exceeded the expectations and bounced straight back up to the Championship on the first time of asking.

Although, there is already questions being asked if Bolton have the squad to survive the Championship.

With such an incredible defensive record, only conceding 36 goals in 46 league games, the Wanderers are defensively prepared for Championship life.

However, if Bolton are to avoid relegation they will certainly needs to improve their firepower upfront.

Subsequently, Bristol Rovers’ Billy Bodin, who is valued at £170k on transfermarkt, could potentially be the perfect talisman to guide Bolton above the relegation zone.

A winger by trade, Bodin was only utilised as a striker for Bristol Rovers, following Matty Taylor’s departure to Bristol City in January, and since playing as a number nine has been a remarkable asset to Rover’s side.

Scoring 13 goals, the 25-year-old was a pivotal part of Rovers campaign, in which they finished in a respectable 10th place.

Additionally, with Bolton’s last season top scorers being Gary Madine on nine goals, Bodin will certainly be an improvement over the former Sheffield Wednesday forward, as he poses more traits of a complete forward.

Displaying great dribbling skills, as well as a clinical nature in front of goal, the former Welsh u21 international, would be a fantastic recruitment whether Bolton pursue him as a striker or a winger.
