Wanderers’ manager Phil Parkinson has urged chairman Ken Anderson to open the cheque book to find a new striker, according to the Bolton News.
The plea comes as a return for Christian Doidge looks ever more unlikely.
And with the transfer window closing in a matter of days, Bolton have to step up their search for a new striker.
Speaking to the Bolton News, Parkinson said: “We have got to work towards that this week.
“The chairman has made some calls to other chairmen and we need to be very proactive in the next seven days, if we can.”
However, Parkinson realises the difficulty in acquiring a quality striker.
“It isn’t easy, especially with strikers, they are so tough to get and nobody wants to let them go. But sometimes you have got to pay over the odds, either in wages or transfer fees to try and get that right player” said the Bolton boss.
Whether or not the Bolton chairman, Ken Anderson, listens to his manager’s plea remains to be seen.
Wanderers have yet to make any serious moves in the transfer market and with only a few days to go until the window closes, the clock is ticking down on Bolton’s chances of adding to their squad.
However, if Bolton fail to bring in experienced talent, they can take solace in the promising performances from Luca Connell and Joe Pritchard in Friday’s FA Cup defeat.
