Argentinian striker "always wanted to play for Bolton"

Speaking to the press after his £7m pound move from Boca Juniors, Argentina forward Filipo Biasquez (left) described his delight at finally signing for Bolton Wanderers, the club of his boyhood dreams.

"When I was a child I would always try to steal a newspaper on Monday so I could see how my heroes in Bolton had done that weekend. I will never forget the thrills I experienced at their many exploits. If someone had told me then that one day I would be standing here in the Reebok stadium as a Bolton player, I would have dismissed them as idle fantasists. But here I am, notwithstanding."

Biasquez has been added to Bolton's squad for their forthcoming friendlies against Huddersfield and Dunfermline and admits he has already been impressed with the other players.

"I can't wait to get out there and play with legends like Paul Warhurst and Bo Hansen", he said, "and the gaffer [Sam Allardyce] has really impressed me with his knowledge of the 4-4-2 system".

"I'm here to win trophies", he added.
