Ghana star Sulley Muntari has claimed Bolton are keen on signing him.
Reports last weekend suggested Bolton were ready to launch a bid to sign the Udinese midfielder.
Muntari has impressed at the World Cup with Ghana and his performances are thought to have caught the attention of Bolton boss Sam Allardyce.
The 22-year-old, who had a trial at Manchester United earlier in his career, has admitted he would be interested in a move to England.
"There are lots of clubs who have contacted Udinese over my signature and that includes Bolton in England," said Muntari.
Udinese know they face a fight to keep hold of Muntari and they will be looking to get the best possible price for him if they decide to sell the African.
