Sunderland are looking to put their best foot forward in the next term and will want to make it a successful one in terms of results, thus reigniting their hope of heading back to the Premier League at the end of the next term. They are preparing to make bids for players who have a good amount of experience playing for their respective clubs in the Premier League as well as Championship.
One such player, who had been playing for the Premier League side Bournemouth for quite a few years now, has been eyed by the current man in charge at the Stadium of Light, Simon Grayson, is Lewis Grabban.
The Black Cats, who are in dire need of a good striker to spearhead their attack in the next season, are looking to make a bid for the Jamaican international, who has been a part of the South Coast club since 2016.
The Wireside club had to let go of their main man in attack, Jermain Defoe, as the veteran England striker joined Bournemouth on a free transfer to continue playing in the Premier League.
Now that they are without the service of the English international, the Black Cats are in distress to find a viable option to play for them upfront and might make a bid for the 29-year-old striker in the next few days.
The Jamaican ace, who has played 115 matches for the Cherries so far, scoring 36 goals for them, has a prolific record under his belt of playing for a number of clubs in English football. He has also played for quite a few outfits in the Scottish Premiership and has got loads of experience to back him for his future with the Wireside club in the next term.
Last season, however, the player was sent on loan to play for the Championship club Reading, where he played in 16 matches throughout the campaign and scored three goals for the Royals.
Now that the season has ended, there is very less chance of the player to make it into the first team for the Cherries, with the current man in charge at Dean Court, Eddie Howe, looking much more inclined to use Jermain Defoe as his main man up front.
However, the vast experience of the 29-year-old forward can come in handy for the Black Cats in the next season, and help them become a part of top flight football once again.
