Bolton Wanderers have been linked with a surprise transfer swoop

  •  Bolton Wanderers are in contention for a top two finish in League One, thanks to Ian Evatt’s leadership.
  •  Signing free agent Ravel Morrison comes with risks due to his off-field issues, unnecessary for Bolton at this stage.
  •  Bolton’s successful season doesn’t require any disruptions, making the potential Morrison signing questionable
  • Bolton Wanderers picked up a crucial three points at Cambridge United in the week to keep themselves firmly in the hunt for a top two finish.

    Ian Evatt has done a brilliant job with the Trotters, and they will hope to record a second promotion under his guidance later this year.

  • With the team playing good football and looking settled, it was somewhat surprising to see that Bolton are supposedly among the clubs considering a contract offer to free agent Ravel Morrison.
  • The 31-year-old is without a club after leaving DC United last year, and it’s thought that Bolton, Sheffield Wednesday and Peterborough are weighing up a short-term offer to the midfielder.

    The former Manchester United youngster is regarded as a top talent when it comes to natural ability, but there have been many off-field incidents over the years, which has disrupted his progress.

    Whether his reputation as a troublemaker is justified is open to debate, but it will certainly make some clubs think twice before moving for Morrison.

    And, speaking to FLW, Bolton fan pundit Oliver admitted that he thinks this would be a risk the League One high-flyers don’t need to take at this stage of the season.

    Personally, I’d stay clear of Ravel Morrison, just because he’s got a track record with attitude problems.

    Ian Evatt’s moulded his squad over a number of years now to be the right sort of characters, and we all seem to be pulling in the right direction.

    If it was an area of the pitch we were particularly light on through injuries or whatnot, then maybe I’d consider it but I still wouldn’t be too sure.

    But we certainly aren’t light in the midfield area, so I think it would be an unnecessary signing to be honest. We’ve seen in the past how things have played out when we’ve taken gambles on players who are perhaps maybe considered a level above, but quite often there’s a reason for that.
