Bolton To Spend Big For Camara?

Last updated : 25 May 2004 By Mark Heys
Bolton Wanderers are said to be willing to break the bank in their bid to land Senegalese international striker Henri Camara from Wolverhampton Wanderers and some reports this morning claim Trotters manager Sam Allardyce is to spend £3 million of the club's budget in trying to lure the ex-Sedan forward to the Reebok Stadium.

World Cup star Camara publicy stated last week that he wished to remain in the Premiership following Wolves relegation back to the lower leagues and this was followed by the submission of a transfer request which was rejected by his club who accused agent Willie McKay of trying to tout business for his client.

Wolves cheif executive Jez Moxey says the club are very reluctant to allow Camara to leave and it would take a big money offer to even make them consider selling what they beleive is a prized asset.

The spending policy at Bolton in recent years has been to bring in players on expensive wages without paying a fee but there is a strong hint that the Trotters could be about to do away with tradition and spend big on Camara. If the player does move to the Reebok Stadium then Bolton would need to break their transfer record which was the £3,500,000 fee paid to Wimbledon for the services of Dean Holdsworth back in October 1997.
