Portsmouth and Shrewsbury Town are both keen on signing Leyton Orient striker Macauley Bonne, according to The Sun.

The 22-year-old striker has been in fine form for Leyton Orient in the National League this season and has scored 20 goals in 40 appearances.

Portsmouth are just on the brink of the Play-Offs in League One and will see Bonne as one for the future and someone who will add some more firepower to their attack next season.

Shrewsbury Town, on the other hand, are chasing down Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers for the automatic promotion places under Paul Hurst. The Shrews have had a great season and are already plotting potential signings for the summer, no matter what league they will be in. Bury are also said to be interested.

Bonne joined Leyton Orient in the summer from League Two side Colchester United for an undisclosed fee. The Zimbabwe international has turned out to have been an inspired piece of business.

He played for Ipswich Town and Norwich City at youth level before joining Colchester in 2013. He played 84 times for them as well as having loan spells at Woking and Lincoln City.

Macauley Bonne looks to have a bright career ahead of him and it will be interesting to see where he ends up in the summer. Portsmouth and Shrewsbury Town are two very good options for him and he will have to consider which side will benefit his career the most.
