Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers have been linked with Clarck N’Sikulu.

Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers have submitted season-long loan offers for Evian striker Clarck N’Sikulu, according to France Football.

The report suggests that the Lancashire duo are seeking a deal ahead of the 6pm transfer deadline with a loan offer with the option of a €2 million [roughly £1.45 million] purchase next summer.

The French-born striker has become a prime target for clubs this summer following his club’s relegation from France’s top-flight Ligue 1 last season.

According to a previous report in Footmercato, Bournemouth and two other unnamed Premier League sides were accredited with an interest this summer though no bid was publically made.

Blackburn and Bolton have started the season poorly, and their lack of goal scorers was evident during their recent drab 0-0 draw at Ewood Park – a result which left both clubs in the bottom four.

N’Sikulu, 23, is a talented player who started his career at French giants Lille before moving to Evian in 2012, scoring his first ever goal at home to Pars Saint-Germain in a 2-0 victory.

Capable of playing through the middle, the French-born Congolese ace is versatile and can also play as a wide forward, featuring a number of times as a left-sided forward last season.

The report in France Football goes on to say that Evian are pondering a deal, though it is suggested that they would prefer to sell him outright before the window closes.
