Bolton are in talks with Fiorentina’s Hidetoshi Nakata, the Italian club have confirmed.

A statement from Fiorentina confirmed the Japanese midfielder is in London to discuss the terms of his contract with Bolton.

Bolton manager Sam Allardyce is looking to bolster his squad and he has developed a reputation for attracting big-name overseas players to the Reebok.

“Hidetoshi is a player I admire and it would be great to have him on board,” Allardyce told Bolton’s official website.

“We will see how the talks progress over the next couple of days.”
