Bolton Wanderers Have “Genuine Interest” In Premier League Star This Winter

Bolton Wanderers are one of four clubs in League One showing an interest in Manchester United midfielder Dan Gore this winter, according to the latest reports.

Gore has been with the Red Devils since 2018 and rose through the academy ranks to make his competitive debut off the bench in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in the EFL Cup back in September. Furthermore, the 19-year-old made his Premier League debut on Boxing Day in a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa, coming on in stoppage time for Christian Eriksen to see out of the game.

The youngster has spent the majority of the season in Man United’s U23s side but has been sporadically called up to the first-team by head coach Erik ten Hag, particularly when injury issues were mounting up at Old Trafford.

However, according to The Daily Mail, Manchester United understand that Gore needs regular minutes in the men’s game to further his development and are willing to allow the teenager to head out on loan for the remainder of the campaign.

The outlet have also claimed that, while sides in the Championship are keeping tabs for Gore, the most “genuine interest” has come from clubs in England’s third tier, naming Bolton Wanderers, Shrewsbury Town, Blackpool and Fleetwood Town as the likeliest candidates.

This would be the second loan move Bolton have completed with Man United over the past twelve months, having signed Shola Shoretire in January of last year, who went on to make 16 appearances under Ian Evatt before returning to the English giants.

Many Bolton Wanderers supporters will be worried about taking another player on loan from Manchester United as Shoretire struggled to impress at the Toughsheet Community Stadium in his short stint with the club.

However, Gore has a much higher ceiling than Shoretire. The young midfielder plays a deeper role and likes to dictate the play as well as the tempo of the game. The only issue is that he is quite nimble and lean, meaning it’s unclear how this will translate to League One football which can be incredibly physical.
