Bristol City remain in the hunt for a new striker.

The Robins continue to look in the free agent market for potential options, as per a report by Bristol Live.

Lee Johnson’s side are looking thin up front following the injury to Benik Afobe.

Their coach, Jamie McAllister, has provided an update on their transfer search, as per Bristol Live: “We’re always looking, always looking to improve. But as we said, it has to be the right fit for the group. Fit our style and way of playing and make sure that they’ll add something that benefits the team.”

Bristol City have been linked with free agent striker Gary Hooper, who has previously played for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Celtic, Norwich City and Sheffield Wednesday. When asked about him, MacAllister said: “Yeah, we’ve looked at all the out of contract ones. The people we’ve got at the club, the scouts, the people we’ve got behind the scenes, they do all that investigation and looking at who’s available and who’s not and putting it forward to us. We look at everyone.”

As I say, it’s got to be the right fit, the right character, the right player: something we’re looking for, something we need to add to the team to make us stronger, make us better.”

He continued: “The window’s not far away, January will come in quick. We’re always looking. The recruitment team we’ve got is excellent and they’re always pinging in names and making sure we’re aware who’s available, who’s not, who’s fallen out of favour and who might be available January, who are free agents. It’s constant.”
