Cardiff City are eyeing a transfer swoop for Wigan Athletic striker Kieffer Moore according to a report from Football Insider.
Moore has struggled to hit his best run of form in front of goal for the Latics this season, but has seemingly caught the eye of Bluebirds boss Neil Harris early into the January transfer window.
The 27-year-old has netted just two goals in 17 appearances for Paul Cook’s side this term, and it remains to be seen if he is keen on a move to Cardiff anytime soon.
Moore has only been with Wigan for just over five months, after completing a move to the Latics from Barnsley, after a hugely impressive spell in front of goal.
He scored 19 goals in 35 appearances for the Tykes in the 2018/19 season, as they won promotion to the Championship under the guidance of Daniel Stendel.
Cardiff will be hoping they can bolster their attacking options in the January transfer window as they look to maintain their challenge for a play-off spot.
The Bluebirds are currently sat 12th in the Championship table, and are four points adrift of sixth-placed rivals Swansea City.

I’m not convinced that he’s the striker that is the answer to their problems.
I agree that Cardiff need to be targeting a striker this month, but there are other and more-proven options out there for Neil Harris’ side.
Moore has a proven record in League One, but I don’t think there are better options available that could fire Cardiff up the Championship table.
