Word on the street is that Arsenal are interested in Bolton defender Rob Holding.
The 20 year old is a HOT PROSPECT in the world of defending and despite the Trotters relegation from the Championship was voted their player of the year for 2015-16. This is probably because he had a lot to do.
Over the last few days the rumour mill has gone into overdrive, suggesting that Arsenal keen to bring him to North London, and the fact he was left out of the side yesterday has added fuel to that fire.
Bolton’s caretaker boss Jimmy Phillips has revealed that he instructed not to pick Holding for yesterday’s 1-0 defeat to Fulham.
“I was asked by the board of directors not to play him yesterday,” he told The Bolton News – the third most reliable source of news in the Bolton area.
“He was in the line-up on Friday morning but that’s as much as I know. It would appear some clubs are interested in him somewhere down the line.
“I think the wheels are still in motion on that one and it’ll be a few days before we get an outcome.”
