Skysports.com understands Bolton are lining up a loan move for Turkish forward Tuncay.
The former Middlesbrough and Stoke striker is currently on the books of German outfit Wolfsburg.
The 29-year-old secured a switch to the Bundesliga in January after falling out of favour at the Britannia Stadium.
He could, however, be heading back to the Premier League this summer.
Bolton are prepared to offer him a route back to England, where he has shone in the past.
A two-year stint with Middlesbrough proved that he has what it takes to be a success at the highest level, with his creative flair lighting up the Premier League at times.
Tuncay's work rate also helped him to settle quickly, with forwards now relied upon to defend from the front.
All of his attributes appeal to Bolton boss Owen Coyle, who is desperately trying to bolster his ranks before the new season gets underway.
It is understood that the Trotters are keen to take Tuncay on a season-long loan, allowing him to see out the 2011/12 campaign at the Reebok Stadium.
