Bolton Wanderers have left forward Zach Clough out of their squad for this weekend’s clash against Eastleigh after the club received a ‘large’ bid for the player, according to The Sun’s Alan Nixon.
The 20-year-old forward has been the subject of interest from numerous Championship clubs over recent weeks, but now it appears Bolton may have received a big enough bid to let him leave.
Nixon states that a ‘surprise club’ is in for the forward and it unclear whether Clough actually wants to leave Bolton to join the club. As a result of the bid, the striker is set to talk to his potential new club over the weekend about a move.
Clough has made 12 appearances for Bolton this season, scoring three goals for the club. Reading and Sheffield Wednesday are two clubs who have been linked with a move for the player.
Bolton’s current financial situation and uncertainty surrounding the club has led to the Football League placing a transfer embargo for this transfer window, as they failed to submit the required paperwork, and as a result Bolton will have to sell players before they can bring anyone in.
Clough is seen as a prized asset to the Lancashire side, and it will be difficult for Neil Lennon to turn down any big offers that the club have received.
