The Spanish star is currently with Turkish outfit Besiktas, but they are set to allow him to move to The Reebok on a season-long loan.
Trotters chief Sam Allardyce is hopeful that the Spain international will complete his move later this week.
"We are still reasonably confident that Juanfran should join us soon," said Allardyce.
"Nothing is certain about the deal and there is still a little work to be done, but I remain hopeful that it can be pushed through in the near future."
New Mexican signing Jared Borgetti will complete the formalities of his deal on Wednesday, but he will be sent away for a holiday straight away.
"It is only a quick check from a medical point of view everything else is done and sorted.
"We'll then send him away for a holiday, which will be crucial for him to rest and recuperate so he is ready for the most physical season he'll have in a long time."
