Bolton Wanderers, Bradford City and Wigan Athletic are in a chase to sign Peterborough United’s Paul Taylor according to a report from The Football League Paper via the Bristol Post.
The 29-year-old striker has been at Peterborough since he signed for them from Ipswich Town back in 2016, his second spell at the club after initially playing for them back in 2011. But while the Posh turned down an offer from Mansfield Town for Taylor during the January transfer window, they did eventually let him go after announcing his release back in April.
But it appears that Taylor will be able to find a new club easily as plenty of teams are interested in signing him now that he is a free agent. This report suggests that Bolton, Bradford, Bristol Rovers, Rochdale and Wigan are all after his signature and will be pushing to sign him during the summer. However one thing that should be noted is that Mansfield will not be continuing their interest in the striker as they believe they have signed enough players going into next season after capturing a stunning 13 players this summer.
But for Taylor, who is coming off the back of a season where he scored six times in 47 appearances, he will have a great choice of clubs to pick from should all of the interested parties come forward with an offer. For a player who has often struggled to get first team action, it is a surprisingly wide array of teams interested in signing him and it should mean Taylor will have a home come next season.
