The 28-year-old has agreed personal terms worth £100k a week over a four-year term.
The clubs were haggling late last night with Bolton insisting on a £18m transfer deal and agreement is expected this morning according to a club insider.
Anelka will have a medical later today and is expected to train with the players tomorrow.
Aneka will be put straight into the starting line-up to face Spurs on Saturday.
