Sky Sports sources understand Bolton have had a bid accepted for Liverpool striker David Ngog.
The Trotters have long been linked with a move for the 22-year-old Frenchman and are looking to push through a deal before the passing of Wednesday's transfer deadline.
Ngog moved to Anfield in 2008 when former Reds manager Rafa Benitez brought him to the club from Paris St Germain.
He made 38 appearances for Liverpool last season but Kenny Dalglish sees him as surplus to requirements following a busy summer of recruitment.
Meanwhile, Owen Coyle has a contingency plan in hand should much-coveted central defender Gary Cahill depart the Reebok Stadium.
If Cahill does make a dramatic exit, then Coyle has lined up Manchester City's Nedum Onuoha as a replacement.
