AFC Bournemouth have joined the race to sign Huddersfield Town striker Karlan Grant.

The Terriers will face a battle to hold onto their key forward this winter, according to a report by The Sun.

Wolves were linked with the 22-year-old last week and will now face competition to land his signature from fellow Premier League side Bournemouth.

The Cherries are eager to sharpen their attacking options this January and could turn to Grant, who is valued in excess of £10 million.

Grant moved to Huddersfield in January from Charlton Athletic and scored four goals in 13 Premier League appearances for the Yorkshire side as they were relegated to the Championship.

He has adapted well to life in the second tier and has chipped in with nine goals so far for Danny Cowley’s side.

The London-born striker started his career at Charlton and rose up through the youth ranks at the Valley. He had loan spells at Cambridge United and Crawley Town as a youngster before going onto make 98 appearances for the Addicks.

Grant bagged 14 goals in 29 games in League One during the first half of last season which earned him his move to the top flight with Huddersfield.

He proved that he can cut it in the Premier League last term and having maintained his goal scoring exploits in the Championship, could Grant be back on his way to the big time this January?
