Burnley targeting transfer move for Championship striker with £10 million price-tag

Published

Cardiff City striker Kieffer Moore is a transfer target for Premier League strugglers Burnley, according to GiveMeSport.

The Clarets are in the market for a new talisman following the departure of New Zealand international Chris Wood, who has signed for Newcastle United after the Magpies triggered his release clause.

And Sean Dyche could go down the same route of replacing Wood with a target man-type forward in the form of Moore.

Quiz: Can you name which club Cardiff City signed these 28 defenders from?

The 29-year-old has scored just five times for the Bluebirds this season, which isn’t a patch on how he performed in his debut campaign in South Wales where he scored 20 Championship goals.

Championship high-flyers Bournemouth have also been linked recently to the Wales international, but the Cherries reportedly do not want to pay the £10 million price-tag on Moore’s head.

Moore’s contract at the Cardiff City Stadium does not expire until the summer of 2023 so it’s likely that it will take an eight-figure fee to secure his services.

The Verdict

Whilst Cardiff do not want to lose their talisman, you have to wonder if Steve Morison could do without him.

The new Cardiff head coach seems to prefer younger up-and-coming players and with Moore now 29 years old, he might not be as indispensable as he was in the summer.

Moore had just come off the back of a 20-goal season and there was seemingly interest – none of which amounted to any accepted transfer bids.

But with just five goals in the current campaign his stock may have slightly decreased – that hasn’t stopped Burnley being interested though and it’s no shock to see Dyche looking at a big target man like the Welshman.
