Cardiff City and Bristol City are reportedly both interested in signing Croatian striker Petar Musa from Slavia Prague before the January transfer window shuts.
The report from Football Insider states that the 6ft 2in, 21-year-old has emerged on a host of English clubs’ radars this month after scoring seven goals during a loan spell with Slovan Liberec, although it is the Bluebirds and the Robins who seem to be leading the way.
Can you name the last 12 Bristol City players to wear the No.10 shirt?
Slavia Prague are said to be aware of the intrest form the two Championship sides and apparently have an option in place to cancel his current loan in order to send him elsewhere, if a more attractive deal became available.
Both sides remain hopeful of breaking into the play-off places before the end of the season, with Bristol City currently sat in ninth with a point between themselves and the top-six, whilst Cardiff occupy 12th and are four points adrift.
This weekend sees Lee Johnson welcome Barnsley to Ashton Gate for a match he will be desperate to win in order to ease the pressure currently growing on him, whilst Cardiff travel to Birmingham City.
I think either move would be a good one for Musa.
Cardiff are perhaps the side more in need of a marksman and, given his build, you would back him to thrive in a Neil Harris set-up.
But having missed out on Eddie Nketiah, the Robins will also be eager to bolster their front-line with Musa still likely to get plenty of opportunities at Ashton Gate as well.
