Sky Bet Championship side Cardiff City have made a €1 million offer for Heracles Almelo striker Wout Weghorst, according to walesonline.co.uk.
The 23-year-old has scored six goals in 16 appearances for the Eredivisie club this season, including four in four games back in August and September.
Walesonline say that, according to the Dutch media, Cardiff manager Russell Slade has made an offer of €1 million for the 23 year-old, and he was left out of his side’s clash against FC Groningen at the weekend supposedly due to interest from the Welsh side.
The relatively unknown striker would be a big gamble for Slade, as his side push for promotion this season.
His career began at FC Emmen before he made the move to Heracles in 2014 and, in his debut season, the Dutch striker netted eight times in 31 appearances.
Weghorst would be another big signing that could boost Cardiff’s promotion push, especially as the former Leyton Orient manager is attempting to turn Tony Watt’s loan spell at the club into a permanent one in January.
Heracles currently sit in fourth place in the Eredivisie and compete against the likes of Feyenoord, Ajax and PSV. Weghorst has aided their push with goals against the likes of PEC Zwolle and FC Twente.
Cardiff meanwhile sit just outside of the play-off places and will be looking to make a big push in the second half of the season with signings like Weghorst showing their promotion credentials.
