Big Sam signals interest in signing Fowler

April 10, 2006

Bolton manager Sam Allardyce is ready to make a bid for Robbie Fowler in the summer.

Fowler wants to remain at Liverpool in the long-term and scored the winner on his 31st birthday when the two clubs met.

However his future remains uncertain and Allardyce would love to be able to afford to bring in the Anfield striker.

'You'd always think about a goalscorer like him, but it would depend on the big numbers,' Allardyce told Sky Sports.

'If he keeps on scoring for Liverpool, they will want to keep him.

'One of their problems has been scoring, but their defence is the ultimate and it is what we are trying to achieve.'
