Huddersfield Town striker Karlan Grant has recently been linked with a move to Premier League clubs AFC Bournemouth and Wolves recently according to a report from The Sun.
Grant has been in hugely impressive form for the Terriers this season, and has been a rare bright spark in what has been a disappointing start to their first season back in the Championship.
Huddersfield are currently sat 18th in the league table, but have shown improvement since Danny Cowley took charge of them earlier in this year’s campaign.
But Grant is one of the few players to show consistency in his performances, with the former Charlton Athletic forward scoring nine goals so far this term.
It seems as though that good run of form in front of goal hasn’t gone unnoticed either, with Eddie Howe’s side being one of the clubs taking an interest in landing his signature ahead of the New Year.
We look at TWO reasons why Huddersfield must reject any approach for Grant ahead of the January transfer window.
They could be facing relegation without him
Grant has been Huddersfield’s star player so far this season, and the club’s supporters will want to see the club do everything they can to keep him at the club for the foreseeable future.
So, it’s clear to see that they would be in real trouble without his contribution this season. You have to fear the worst for Huddersfield if they were to cash in on him in January, especially if they weren’t to reinvest the money in an adequate replacement for the 22-year-old.
Huddersfield’s ambition would come into question if he was sold
It’s safe to say that it’s not been the season that many Huddersfield would have hoped for in their first campaign back in the Championship.
They kept the majority of the core group of players together this season, which makes their dismal start to the season even more surprising.
But given that Grant has started this season so brightly, it isn’t a surprise to see him attracting interest ahead of the January transfer window.
Huddersfield supporters will be hoping that their side can return to the top-flight in the next few years, but if they were to sell Grant so early his time with the club, then supporters would certainly question the ambition of the club going forward.
