Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle has moved for Porto star Juan Manuel Iturbe.

The Mirror says Coyle has approached Portuguese giants Porto to ask if he can take the 18-year-old attacker on loan, in a deal with echoes of his previous swoops to borrow Arsenal's Jack Wilshere and Chelsea's Daniel Sturridge.

Iturbe has played only a couple of times for Porto since a controversial transfer from South America, and is rumoured to have been 'parked' at the club before a move to Manchester United or Chelsea.

Bolton now want to snap up Iturbe and give him first-team football for half a season, in the hope he can help their Premier League survival bid.
