Spanish Star Tracked

Spanish midfielder Mikel Alonso plies his trade in Spain with Real Sociedad, who were relegated last season.

The 27-year-old is thought to play in a similar style to that of his sibling and he is eager to make a switch to the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Bolton have also offered a trial to Swiss wide man David Degen.

Degen, 24, usually operates wide on the right for Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga, and he too endured disappointment last season, as his club also failed to beat the drop.

Sammy Lee told the clubs official website, "I have invited the two players over to Austria with the rest of the first team squad so we can have a good look at them. Both players could interest us for next season."

"Mikel (Alonso) is a creative midfielder who has an excellent passing game similar to his brother Xabi, who plays at Liverpool. David (Degen) likes to play wide-right and exploit the flanks. He has a good turn of pace, which could add a new dimension to our style of play."
