Championship side Bristol City have had an offer accepted for Bolton Wanderers striker Zach Clough, according to Daily Mirror reporter Alan Nixon.
The 20-year-old is being hailed as one of England’s brightest young stars, having only made 20 appearances for Bolton and scoring eight goals up front for the his boyhood club.
After being touted by enormous sides like Manchester United and Liverpool, he’s attracted interest from a number of Championship teams due to Bolton’s financial crisis.
Birmingham City, Reading, Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday all struck up an interest in his signature, and were all interested in moves this month.
However, it’s been revealed by the Daily Mirror’s Alan Nixon that Bristol City have had a ‘huge bid’ accepted by Bolton for their star man.
Nixon later revealed that the fee is over £2m and could potentially rise to £3m should he meet a number of clauses, but he goes on to say that Clough still needs convincing over a move to Ashton Gate.
It’ll be deja vu for Bristol City if Clough does reject a move, after Andre Gray and Dwight Gayle snubbed the chance to link up with Steve Cotterill’s men in the summer after he made big money moves for the two.
