Man City, Bolton encouraged in Izmailov interest

Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers are tracking Sporting Lisbon winger Marat Izmailov.

Izmailov is on-loan at Sporting from Lokomotiv Moscow, but it's emerged he is reluctant to commit to a permanent deal with the Portuguese club.

City boss Sven Goran Eriksson was keen on Izmailov in January, while Bolton and several other Premiership rivals have been linked with the Russia international this season.
