Blues ‘scouting’ Bolton Wanderers duo
Everton are the reportedly the latest side to be scouting highly-rated Bolton Wanderers duo Dennis Politic and Ronan Darcy.
The teenage duo have been fast-tracked in the Whites first team squad this season as a result of their well-publicised off-field problems.
But while most of Bolton’s youngsters returned to Under-23s and Under-18s duty following the club’s recent takeover and managerial appointment of Keith Hill, Politic and Darcy having remained with the senior set-up.
Football Insider reports Everton are scouting both players this season and intend to closely monitor their development.
Winger Politic has scored twice from 11 appearances for the Trotters this season, with the 19-year-old Romania youth international also attracting interest from Aston Villa, Wolves and Rangers.
Meanwhile, forward Darcy has scored one goal from eight appearances.
Can’t recall seeing much of Darcy during my time at Wanderers but Politic was already a very exciting prospect who often caught the eye back in 2017/18.
