The 24-year-old has struggled for form this season, scoring just twice in 24 appearances, and he has failed to nail down a regular place in the starting XI.
Boro boss Aitor Karanka is willing to let Jutkiewicz move on as he looks to reshape the squad at the Riverside.
A number of clubs, including Blackburn, Brighton and Bournemouth have all been linked with moves for the former Everton youngster, but Bolton are hoping to win the race for his signature.
Bolton boss Dougie Freedman is keen to bolster his attacking options before the close of the transfer window and has identified Jutkiewicz as one of his top targets.
