WANDERERS could add two golden oldies to their attack before the close of the transfer window.

It is understood Phil Parkinson is in advanced talks with Bristol City’s Aaron Wilbraham, with the 37-year-old target man seen as ideal competition for Gary Madine.

But we have also learned a short-term deal for ex-Arsenal and Real Madrid striker Julio Baptista is being investigated.

Whites chairman Ken Anderson’s son Lee has a good relationship with the 35-year-old and has had dialogue in the past week following the Brazilian’s appearance at the London Soccer Sixes.

It was reported Wilbraham signed a one-year deal at Ashton Gate earlier this summer but is looking to quash the arrangement and return north, where he began his career with Stockport.

He has already trained with the Bolton squad and should be in the squad for the season opener against Leeds United this weekend.

The Knutsford-born striker has had nine professional clubs, six promotions, and, like his former County team-mate Adam Le Fondre, scored goals in all four divisions, 119 in all.

Rumours of a deal for Batista have caught the imagination of the Bolton public, although it is not yet known whether the powerful front man – nicknamed “The Beast” – will pass work permit regulations.

He last played in MLS for Orlando City but has been searching for a club for the last seven months, contemplating a move to China and Spain.

Baptista has 48 caps for his country, the last of which came in June 2010.

He spent 12 months at Arsenal and scored 10 goals in his 35 appearances, including a four-goal haul against Liverpool in the League Cup.

Tuesday night’s Under-23s victory over Marine also saw a raft of trialists, including ex-Tottenham defender Joe Muscatt and experienced former Ajax midfielder Eyong Enoh.

It is believed a deal could be in the offing for Hector Otin, a Spain-born former Juventus youth product.
