Bolton Wanderers have begun to make their transfer moves this summer, with Birmingham striker Cameron Jerome one of the club's top targets.
SkySports.com reports that the Trotters made a £5 million bid for the player earlier in the week, although the relegated Blues are holding out for £8 million for the 24-year-old, according to the report.
Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal is another player to be linked with a move to the Reebok Stadium, and the Israeli has issued a warning to the Hoops over his current contract at the club, opening the door to a potential £6 million move south of the border.
“It’s very important to play for who wants you most. I am not the man to make these decisions. I just concentrate on doing my job on the pitch for my team and manager. It’s all about playing football for me in the right place and where I enjoy it," the 23-year-old told the Daily Record.
“I like Celtic. I like the fans, I like the manager and I would be very happy to keep playing for the club. But they must treat me at the level I deserve.”
Darren Pratley is another player to be linked with a move to Bolton, with the Swansea midfielder leaving the Liberty Stadium on a free transfer after five years at the Welsh club. It's reported that Owen Coyle's side are the first to open talks with the player.
"After five years I feel the time is right for a fresh challenge. It's been a difficult decision for me and my family to make because Swansea is a fantastic club with such friendly and passionate supporters," said the highly-rated 26-year-old.
"It's not going to be easy for me, but if there was a good time to leave then it's now with the club having secured their place in the Premier League."
Ali Al-Habsi and Gary Cahill are heavily linked with moves away from the club, while Johan Elmander has also left.
