Gary Megson is aiming to make six more signings this summer and has lodged new bids for Paul Robinson and Ferrie Bodde.
Bolton failed in an attempt to sign Robinson last month, with West Brom saying they would have to increase their offer.
Trotters boss Megson remains interested and hopes to discover soon whether he will be able to recruit the defender
"Paul is a West Brom player at the moment. We have made an offer and we will wait and see what happens with that," he told Sky Sports News.
Swansea midfielder Bodde is another target but Megson insists the decision now rests with the Championship club after Bolton tabled their final bid.
"We have made an offer for Ferrie," he confirmed.
"We are where we are with that one and if Swansea do want to do business it will be on the price we have last done at.
"Otherwise we will move on because we have got one or two midfielders here that I am pleased with and every player has their price so we won't go above what we have offered so far."
Manchester City's Gelson Fernandes and Jonathan Greening of West Brom have also been linked with the Trotters but Megson maintains that he is not looking to sign either player.
He said: "Fernandes is very similar to a player we have got here so we are not involved in that one.
"We have not been involved with Jonathan Greening either. We could go on and on because I think we were linked with about 300 players last summer."
Bolton managed to finish 13th in the Premier League last season despite having such a small squad that it was not always possible to name a full complement of substitutes.
Megson wants more options at his disposal over the coming 12 months and has revealed how many players he feels he needs to follow Sean Davis to the Reebok Stadium.
"We've brought Sean in and I'd like to get six more players," he said.
"I don't want to be a football club like we were last year when we turned up at the Emirates with only two or three subs.
"It is always difficult because we are looking for players that can improve us from that 13th spot in the table."
