Cardiff City are reportedly interested in signing veteran Derby County forward Martyn Waghorn this summer.
The Bluebirds have already made a fast start to the transfer window, having already announced the signing of James Collins from Luton Town.
But, according to Football Insider, another striker is also grabbing the Bluebirds’ interest in the form of 31-year-old Waghorn, whose contract at Pride Park expires this summer.
The Rams front man scored five goals and contributed five assists this term as Wayne Rooney’s side narrowly avoided the drop to League One.
As is proving to be the case during McCarthy’s reign, Waghorn is a player he knows very well, having signed him for just £250,000 at Ipswich Town back in the summer of 2017 following the forward’s prolific two-year stint at Rangers.
In just a single season at Portman Road, in which Waghorn scored 16 goals in all competitions, the player’s market value skyrocketed and Ipswich sold him on for £5m to Derby County.
McCarthy has already stated that free transfers and loans are going to play a big part in transfer dealings this summer and that has proven the case with the signing of Collins.
However, the Bluebirds’ striking options are already vast, given Kieffer Moore, Collins, Robert Glatzel, Mark Harris, Max Watters, Isaac Vassell and Isaak Davies are already in place.
Would Martyn Waghorn be a good signing? Have your say in the comments.
One would think that any deal for Waghorn would have to suggest a few outgoings from the above list, with Glatzel available for transfer and Harris having been linked with a loan move away to Crewe.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Ipswich Town were interested in revisiting a move for the striker.
