Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson is chasing Villarreal striker Jon Dahl Tomasson.

The Mirror says Megson flew to Copenhagen to watch the Villarreal striker score against Iceland in a Euro 2008 qualifier. Tomasson flopped at Newcastle, moving on 1998 after less than a year but he has since proved his quality.

Tomasson, 31, won the Champions League with AC Milan and is also the second top-scorer in Denmark's history with 50 strikes to his name.

Megson spoke to Tomasson's agent during his visit and could try to bring him to the Reebok in January if Nicolas Anelka leaves.
