Bolton are close to agreeing a deal to sign Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge on loan, BBC Sport understands.
Sturridge, 21, has been handed just four starts this season, with 17 substitute appearances, and has scored four goals.
Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti insisted he would use more of his younger players at the start of the season.
But Sturridge was also offered to Liverpool as part of a deal to sign Reds striker Fernando Torres.
Liverpool want £50m for the Spanish forward and rejected Chelsea’s first offer of £35m.
They also turned down Chelsea’s offer of cash plus Sturridge to try and sanction a deal but that was also rejected by Liverpool.

This could well be a good opportunity for former Man City youngster Daniel Sturridge to get some much needed first team football and he may look the example of Arsenal teenager Jack Wilshere who put in a successful stint at the Reebok Stadium that led to him securing regular first team football at the Emirates Stadium.
The 21 year old striker has been restricted to cameo appearances from the bench and the odd cup run out and will hope to get more of a look in at the Trotters but he may at first find it hard to break into the Bolton side that has a regular pairing of Kevin Davies and Johann Elmander up front, the pair who have started every Premier League game this season have bagged 16 goals between them this season.
