Bolton bid for Wilfried Zaha

Bolton tempt Palace with 5m swoop for Zaha while Porto youngster Iturbe waits

Bolton are trying to tempt Crystal Palace into selling in-demand young forward Wilfried Zaha before the transfer window slams shut on Tuesday.

The Trotters are keen to beat a host of Premier League rivals to the 19-year-old and have tabled a package worth around 5million that includes a bumper percentage of any future transfer.

Beaten Carling Cup semi-finalists Palace are desperate to hold on to their prize-asset and earlier this season tied him into a new long-term deal.

However with Newcastle having already had a 10m rebuffed, the Championship outfit know they have a fight on their hands. Liverpool are also interested.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle is also tracking Porto's South American forward Juan Iturbe. The 18-year-old is struggling to securer a regular first-team place despite being billed as the next big thing, and could seek fresh direction as he bids to build a career.
