Preston North End have enquired about the availability of Bristol City forward Nahki Wells, a report from Bristol Live has revealed.
Bristol City striker Wells saw limited game time at Ashton Gate last season.
25 of his 32 Championship appearances were as a substitute and with his current contract expiring at the end of the 2022/23 campaign, there are question marks surrounding his long-term future with the Robins.
Now, it has emerged that Championship rivals Preston are showing interest in the Bermudan ace.
Bristol Live has claimed that the Lilywhites have enquired about Wells’ availability this summer as Ryan Lowe looks to bolster his attacking options at Deepdale. An official approach has now been made, but Preston are keen to discover what it would take to sign the striker permanently.
What has been said on Wells’ future?
Despite the lack of game time Wells has been receiving, Nigel Pearson said back in May that the striker was not one of the players spoken to about moving on this summer.
This was before it emerged Antoine Semenyo would be out for up to three months through a shin injury too.
That injury would surely open the door for Wells to play more regular football in the early stages of the season, but it remains to be seen how his situation pans out as Preston North End lurk.
The former QPR and Huddersfield Town star hasn’t had the impact Bristol City would have hoped he’d make when he joined in January 2020. 100 appearances has seen him score 19 times, but there’s no doubt that he can be a danger at this level.
Wells has played over 300 games in the Championship and was a big hit with QPR and Huddersfield Town.
