Sky Blues ramp up striker interest

Last Updated: Mon, 16 Jun 2014 16:15

Norwich City have competition from at least three other Championship clubs for Coventry City's highly-rated striker Callum Wilson.

Bournemouth have already had two bids rejected for the 22-year-old as they look to replace Lewis Grabban who joined the Canaries earlier this month.

Reading and newly-promoted Brentford are also tracking Wilson, while Wolves reportedly made an enquiry about the striker in the January transfer window.

However, Coventry want to hang onto their prized asset who struck 22 goals in 41 games during a prolific first full season in league football.

"At the moment our view is that Callum is not for sale," Sky Blues' development director Steve Waggott told the Coventry Evening Telegraph.

"We have had approaches from four Championship clubs who are keen to secure the services of one of the best young strikers around.

"As it stands we have rebuffed and rejected all offers that have come in. We've had what I would call four firm enquiries all together, comprising two written bids, one quite firm verbal offer and one indicative enquiry where they have said they are interested. They are all Championship clubs, which is to be expected to be honest."
