Bolton are in talks over a possible move for Middlesbrough striker Lukas Jutkiewicz, according to Sky Sports.

The Southampton-born striker signed for 'Boro in January 2012 and has scored 11 goals in 44 league appearances in his two years at the Riverside Stadium.

He has previously played for Swindon Town, Everton and Coventry City and has enjoyed loan spells with Plymouth Argyle, Huddersfield Town and Motherwell in the Scottish Premier League.

He is known for his upper-body strength and ability to hold up the ball, rather than his goalscoring ability, but will be a boost to the Wanderers squad, who have managed just 31 goals in their 24 games this season and sit four points above the Championship relegation zone.

Following a 7-1 drubbing by promotion-chasing Reading at the Madejski Stadium last weekend, Bolton were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round on Saturday following a 1-0 home defeat by Welsh side Cardiff City that came courtesy of a second-half strike from Frazier Campbell.
