Sky Bet Championship side Fulham are looking into buying Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 29-year-old has been playing at Sky Bet Championship side Sunderland for the first half of the season and Grabban found the net twelve times from 19 League appearances while on-loan at the Stadium of Light. However, the Cherries recalled the on-loan striker and are hopeful of moving the front-man on from the Vitality Stadium permanently.
Fulham remain the front-runners in terms of signing the striker as the Daily Mirror reports that they can offer the Premier League side a sum of £7million,
Bournemouth may choose to delay making a decision after a number of Sky Bet Championship hold interest in the striker.
Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers both showed interest in purchasing Grabban, but Cardiff City’s recent form has seen them mount a promotion push and signing the striker would only improve their chances.
Sunderland had lined up Liverpool’s Ben Woodburn to come in, however the highly rated 21-year-old is set to sign for his boyhood club Oxford United in an attempt to get regular football.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe recently confirmed that Grabban would be returning to the Vitality Stadium before being sold, however his potential destination is not yet decided.
“It was a mutual decision between the clubs. Grabban wanted to end his spell with Sunderland so I think Lewis will move on in this window.” he said.
“When that will be and who that will be to? We don’t know.”
