Bolton Wanderers are reportedly considering a move for Liverpool striker David Ngog.
According to the Daily Mail, Bolton are contemplating focusing their attention on signing the Frenchman as their attempts to prise Cameron Jerome away from Birmingham falter.
Ngog, 22, scored eight times in 38 appearances for Liverpool last season but, after some early season promise, found himself forced down the Anfield pecking order after the Reds indulged in some substantial January transfer business.
Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll both arrived in Liverpool during the transfer window for a combined fee of £58 million and, although the latter missed a significant spell through injury, Ngog was rarely in possession of a starting berth.
The former Paris Saint-Germain forward could have secured a path out of Anfield earlier summer as Sunderland displayed an interest in Ngog after Jordan Henderson signed for Liverpool.
However, a transfer did not come to fruition and, as it stands, Ngog will be vying for a place in Kenny Dalglish's plans when the new season begins on Saturday.
Bolton, meanwhile, are also close to completing the signing of former Stoke and Middlesbrough attacker Tuncay Sanli from Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg.
