Bolton Wanderers have handed a trial to former Brazil left-winger Denilson, who was part of his country's World Cup-winning squad in 2002.
The 31-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Palmeiras, having endured a tough three years since leaving Spanish club Real Betis in 2005.
He has since plied his trade in France, Saudi Arabia and the USA, before heading back to his homeland a year ago.
Denilson recently admitted: "I want to play in Europe, but I am not in a rush.
"I have received proposals from England, Greece, Turkey and Germany. I am studying them.
"I understand that this is the time to return to European football, but if I am not convinced by any offer I hope to continue in Brazil, where there are also clubs interested in me."
Meanwhile, the Trotters have confirmed that goalkeeper Adam Bogdan has signed a contract extension to keep him at the Reebok Stadium until the summer of 2011.
