Swansea City striker Marvin Emnes has been linked with a potential move to Championship side Bolton Wanderers, according to rumours coming from Bolton.
The striker, who signed for the Swans permanently in July 2014 after impressing in a couple of loan spells, has falling down the pecking order at the Liberty Stadium. The in-form Bafetimbi Gomis and £5m signing Eder are ahead of the 27-year-old in the forward positions.
Emnes played for Sparta Rotterdam and Middlesbrough, before first arriving on loan in South Wales in 2010. He also went down in Swansea City folklore when he scored the winner in the 1-0 South Wales derby win over Cardiff City in November 2010.
However, unfortunately for the Dutchman, since making the permanent switch to the Liberty he’s only started three league games for the Swans. This season, Emnes has only featured once, scoring in the second round League Cup win over York City.
Now, it looks as though Neil Lennon is ready to make a move for the Swansea striker. The Bolton boss was quoted on Radio Manchester Sport saying that the Trotters are on the brink of capturing a new striker – and rumours suggest that the striker could well be a loan move (with a view to a permanent deal) for Marvin Emnes.
It will be very interesting to see if Emnes takes any part in tonight’s League Cup clash with Hull City.
