Bolton Wanderers striker Luca Navarro is on trial at Hull City.

The 19-year-old has linked up with the Tigers and is hoping to earn a deal with the Championship side, according to journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.

Bolton are having their issues off the field and have been relegated to League One. They have a number of players out of contract next month, including both first-team and academy players.

Navarro rose up the youth ranks with the North-West side but is yet to make a senior appearance for the Trotters.

He has featured regularly for Bolton’s youth sides and has gained first-team experience out on loan at Atherton Collieries and more recently Bamber Bridge.

It is expected to be a summer of transition at Hull City and they will cast an eye over Navarro and decide whether to offer him a deal. If they do, it would be likely that he links up with their Under-23’s side for next season.

The Tigers have given youngsters like Daniel Batty, Robbie McKenzie and Brandon Fleming chances in the first-team this season so the Easy Yorkshire club are a good place for young players to play their football at the moment.

Their manager, Nigel Adkins, has emphasised the importance of creating a pathway for academy players into the senior side. Could Navarro be one for the future at the KCOM Stadium?
