Just In: Ian Evatt have just revealed 3 key players will be leaving this summer

The three Bolton Wanderers players who might draw significant attention this summer

This summer, the Wanderers may be interested in three important guys, and the choices they make will probably divide the fan base.

Bolton Wanderers would have been very interested in a few important players, regardless of the division they would have ended up in the following season.

But, with their 2-0 loss to Oxford United in the League One play-off final at Wembley Stadium this past weekend, they will be much more vulnerable than anticipated, as Championship clubs are vying for some of its best players.

This examines two or three of Ian Evatt’s most sought-after players and considers if it would make sense for Wanderers to sell and make new investments.

Ricardo Santos

Back in League Two, Ian Evatt once declared that he could not find a better defender outside of the Premier League. For the bulk of the season, he has been a truly high quality defender in the third division for the Trotters, both defensively and offensively. However, his performances for Evatt’s team have significantly decreased as a result of pneumonia and other injuries, one of which occurred this season.

Santos’ performance in the aforementioned play-off final drew harsh criticism from many fans, and it’s possible that at this point, most of them won’t be upset if their captain is traded. It’s another matter entirely whether a club approaches him and makes a financial offer, but considering the ceiling that he has already shown himself capable of reaching.

Dion Charles

Dion Charles led the Bolton Wanderers scoring statistics for the second straight season, with 20 goals in all competitions for the Whites and 13 in League One. However, he missed a significant portion of the campaign due to injury, which is starting to irritate Ian Evatt and the team’s supporters. With 49 goals scored thus far for Bolton, he is aiming to become the first Wanderers player to achieve 50 goals since Kevin Nolan.

After spending an estimated £320,000 to join from Accrington Stanley in January 2022, the Northern Ireland international quickly won over supporters with two goals in as many games: a brilliant winner against Shrewsbury Town and a diligent brace in a 6-0 thumping of Sunderland. But given the previous strong links between Stoke City and Watford, his move from the Toughsheet Community Stadium wouldn’t come as a huge surprise.

Aaron Collins

Aaron Collins, the other crucial attacker for Bolton, is one man who is not and should not be for sale, as many Bolton supporters will concur. The attacker, 26, who was born in Newport, moved to the Whites from Bristol Rovers during the January transfer window for a reported cost of around £750,000. He may have had a sluggish start, but he has now helped lead Wanderers to Wembley by scoring nine goals and dishing out two assists.

The Welshman has given Ian Evatt’s club a new dimension and a creative spark. He was named League One’s Player of the Year in 2022–2023, a season in which three teams gained over 96 points, one of which is currently in the Premier League. The Whites’ lone hope may be that Collins did experience a significant decline in the first half of the season. As a result, predators in the Championship may be circling, but they may be waiting for Collins to continue this trend for an entire season.
