Former Tottenham youngster Dervite is available on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at The Valley.
Charlton offered Dervite a new deal to extend his stay at the club, but they were unable to agree terms with the Frenchman.
A number of Championship clubs expressed an interest in signing Dervite, but Bolton are poised to win the race for the centre-back's signature.
Dervite is expected to sign a three-year deal at the Reebok Stadium as Trotters boss Dougie Freedman looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.
