Bolton rival Sunderland for Bordeaux striker Diabate

Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle is keeping tabs on Bordeaux striker Cheick Tidiane Diabaté.

Coyle feels they're a striker short after failing to re-sign Danny Sturridge from Chelsea last summer.

The Scot is now having Diabate watched leading up to January, but will face competition from Sunderland should Bordeaux indicate a willingness to sell.

Black Cats boss Steve Bruce sees Diabate as a replacement for Al Ain loan signing Asamoah Gyan.
