AFC Bournemouth

Cardiff City man with apparent eight-figure price tag wanted by Championship rivals



Bournemouth are interested in signing Cardiff City striker Kieffer Moore, a report from The Sun has claimed.

Moore joined Cardiff from Wigan back in the summer of 2020, and has so far scored 25 goals in 66 appearances in all competitions for the Bluebirds.

Despite the fact that the Welsh international has struggled in front of goal this season in comparison to the previous campaign, it seems he is still attracting attention from elsewhere.

Which club did Cardiff sign these 20 strikers from?

According to this latest update, league leaders Bournemouth are keen on a deal for the 29-year-old in the current January window.

It is thought that Cherries manager Scott Parker sees Moore as cover and competition for his side’s current top scorer Dominic Solanke, who has 18 goals in 25 Championship games this season.

However it is claimed that a deal will only be done if the price is right, and that Cardiff want £10million for Moore as things stand. Bournemouth though, would apparently need that fee to be lowered for a move to happen.

There are currently 18 months remaining on Moore’s contract with Cardiff, securing his future in the Welsh capital until the end of next season.

The Verdict

This does look as though it could be a rather useful signing for Bournemouth.

Although Solanke has been excellent this season, you feel the Cherries would be lacking a reliable regular goalscorer if he was to pick up some sort of injury or suspension.

As a result, bringing Moore in could help to fill that void should such a situation arise, with the striker having shown his ability in front of goal at this level on numerous occasions.

However, if he is to be back up to Solanke, than Cardiff’s £10million asking price feels like a lot, meaning Bournemouth may have to look elsewhere if that valuation cannot be lowered.
