The two clubs are in discussions regarding a potential deal, which is most likely to be a loan with a view to a permanent switch in the summer.

Nsiala is understood to be keen on a move closer to his home in Liverpool, with the switch potentially being completed prior to this weekend.

Bolton's interest was first reported by TWTD.

The 27-year-old, signed for more than £750,000 in a double deal with Shrewsbury that also included midfielder Jon Nolan in the summer of 2018, has had an up-and-down career in an Ipswich shirt which so far consists of 33 appearances and one goal.
