The trio are said to have impressed on trial at Bolton, having been informed that their deals at Everton, Tottenham and Arsenal were not being renewed.
Each came through the ranks at their previous clubs, but have yet to play competitive senior football of any kind.
Moving to Bolton, however, should increase their chances of changing that stat.
Championship Wanderers ensured they would not slip two divisions below Everton, Tottenham and Arsenal by beating Nottingham Forest in dramatic fashion on the final day of last season.
Former Spurs goalkeeper Ben Alnwick was already on the books at the Macron Stadium.
Can the former Everton, Tottenham and Arsenal players kick on at new club Bolton?
