Bristol Rovers’ Matty Taylor is attracting attention from several Sky Bet Championship clubs according to a report from the Mirror.

After topping the scoring charts in Sky Bet League Two, Taylor was one of the most wanted players in the summer but the Gasheads managed to keep hold of the forward after he signed a new contract with them and he has rewarded them now that the club are in Sky Bet League One. He has scored 15 goals in 22 games and has helped the West Country side get to 10th in the table.

However with the January transfer window coming up in just over a month’s time, several Championship sides are interested in luring the high scoring striker up a league. Brighton and Hove Albion, Cardiff City, Wolves and QPR are all interested in Taylor and they are set to start a bidding war in January to make sure the striker ends up at their team rather than one of their rivals. It has also been reported that Scottish giants Rangers are also interested in signing Taylor.

However Bristol Rovers may not get what they want for him. While Taylor is valued at £1m, which is already seen as a cut priced deal because of the potential he has if he replicated his goalscoring form in the Championship, there is a clause in his contract which could see him going for far less than that. This has encouraged his suitors who are set to make a bid when the transfer window opens in January.
