Luton Town want to sign Blackpool defender Marc Bola.

The Hatters have been rebuffed in their first attempts to land the 21-year-old but are expected to go back in again, according to journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.

Graeme Jones is likely to be a busy man this summer as he looks to put his own stamp on his newly inherited squad.  Luton are in the hunt for some reinforcements to their squad as they prepare for the Championship next season.

They are set to lose key full-back James Justin to Premier League side Leicester City so may see Bola as a potential replacement.

Bola, who was born in London, impressed for Blackpool in League One last season and played 43 times in all competitions. He still has a year left to run on his contract at Bloomfield Road.

The young left-back joined the Arsenal academy at the age of 13 and rose up through the youth ranks with the Gunners. He has never made a senior appearance for the London club but has gained plenty of first-team experience out on loan.

Bola spent the second-half of the 2016/17 season on loan in League Two at Notts County before spending the 2017/18 campaign in the third tier with Bristol Rovers.

He was released by Arsenal last year and subsequently joined Blackpool on a free transfer. The move to the Seasiders has paid off for Bola and he could now be on his way to the Championship with Luton.
