Blackpool among 5 EFL and Scottish Premiership clubs chasing 22-goal striker

Barrow striker Richie Bennett is a wanted man this summer after impressing in front of goal this season, according to HITC Sport.

Richie Bennett scored 22 goals in his first season at Barrow, helping his side to finish in 7th place in the National League.

The Bluebirds just missed out on a play-off place and the chance to compete for a spot in the Football League.

As a result, they have already lost star man Jordan Williams to Rochdale.

And now the non-league outfit could be set to lose their key marksman with Richie Bennett attracting plenty of interest.

Blackpool, who recently won promotion to League One via the League Two play-offs, are interested in signing the 25-year-old this summer.

The Tangerines are looking to bolster their squad as they prepare for a season back in the third tier of English football.

They will be rivalled for the signing of Richie Bennett by a trio of League Two clubs.

Chesterfield – who were recently relegated to League Two – are also keen on signing Bennett while Crewe Alexandra are considering a swoop.

Carlisle, who lost in the play-off semi-final to eventual runners-up Exeter City, are the other interested party as they seek long-term replacements for Charlie Wyke and Jabo Ibehre.

Scottish Premiership outfit Motherwell are also eyeing the former Northwich Victoria forward with star striker Louis Moult attracting widespread interest.

Blackpool, Crewe, Carlisle and Chesterfield fans – would Bennett be a good signing? Let us know below…
