Clarke-Harris – who has scored 23 goals in all competitions – has played an influential role in helping Posh climb to the top of the League One table, and is now attracting interest.
According to Bristol Live, Bournemouth and West Brom have been scouting Clarke-Harris, whose value is now said to be around the £5million mark.
Bournemouth are said to have the most sustained interest, with Jonathan Woodgate holding an interest in the striker from his time in charge of Middlesbrough.
West Brom are believed to be eyeing Clarke-Harris as a potential signing if they are relegated from the Premier League to the Championship.
Clarke-Harris has been in incredible form this season and it’s another sensational attacking signing for Peterborough.
He looks set to hit 30 goals in all competitions, and at 26-years-old, he is only going to get better and better.
Even if Posh don’t go up this season, you’d expect Clarke-Harris to be playing in the Championship or in a higher division. He’s tall, quick and strong and is also a very good finisher, which makes him a great potential addition.
