BOURNEMOUTH are ready to rival Wolves for Karlan Grant in the January transfer window.
The Huddersfield striker is expected to attract Premier League bids when the market opens following his form in the last year.
Grant, 22, has netted nine times in the Championship this season and has played a massive part in the club’s revival under Danny Cowley.
And his goalscoring record in the top flight last season, despite relegation, has made him marked out as a low-risk target for clubs looking to add firepower in the second half of the season.
Grant was playing in League One with Charlton until last January and following his move to the John Smith’s Stadium scored four goals.
Cowley will weigh up whether he wants to cash in on Grant and lose his scoring threat.
Since his appointment as boss they have gone from relegation battlers to one of the form teams in the second tier.
But they would also stand to make a huge profit on the £2million they paid Charlton less than a year ago.
Terriers boss Cowley already admitted he is not “scared” of clubs showing interest in Grant.
He said: “I only worry if other clubs don’t want my players because it’s a bit like having a girlfriend, isn’t it?
“If you’ve got a girlfriend nobody else wants maybe you question why she’s your girlfriend, so I think you want a girlfriend and a wife who other people look at.
“It’s the same for the players. You want good players and if you’ve got good players with an excellent attitude and work ethic and high quality, then it’s natural that other people would want them.
“We’re not scared of that: we want that, and we know that if we are able to get our players into a place where they’re playing at their best then they’re always going to attract interest.”
