The start of the summer transfer window is now just a week away and it’s one that Bristol City will no doubt be keen to make the most of.

11 senior players were released at the end of their contracts meaning Nigel Pearson has some rebuilding to do ahead of next season.

With that in mind, we’ve highlighted all the latest Robins transfer news…

City in race for departing Charlton striker

The departure of Famara Diedhiou has left City needing to add some more firepower and it seems they’re eyeing Charlton Athletic forward Chuks Aneke.

According to TEAMtalk, the Robins are one of a number of Championship clubs keen on Aneke – who scored 16 goals for the Addicks last term.

The report claims Aneke has turned down Charlton’s new contract offer and is now set to become a free agent but City face competition from Reading, Coventry, QPR, and Middlesbrough.

It is understood there are clubs in America and Scotland interested as well, however, the 27-year-old believes moving back to the Championship could help him secure a Premier League move in the future.

21 things every Bristol City fan should know about their club, so can you score 100% on this?

Robins eye Rotherham man as Diedhiou replacement

Another player that City are looking at as a potential replacement for Diedhiou is Rotherham United striker Michael Smith.

According to Gregor MacGregor from the Bristol Post, the South West club are interesting in signing the target man this summer.

Smith – who has scored 18 goals across his last two seasons in the Championship – only has a year left on his current deal, meaning the Millers may be open to cashing in on him, but Middlesbrough have also been linked.

City targetting Albert Adomah reunion

It’s been nearly eight years since Albert Adomah left Ashton Gate to join Middlesbrough but sources have informed Football League World that a reunion could be on the cards.

It is understood that the Robins are one of a number of clubs keen on signing the 33-year-old winger should he choose to leave the R’s this summer.

Adomah was little more than a bit-part player last term but still showed his quality – finishing with two goals and five assists in 843 minutes of Championship football.
