Cardiff City would are unlikely to sell Kieffer Moore for £7m after Wolves were linked with the striker.
The Welsh international enjoyed a brilliant year for the Bluebirds last season, before impressing at Euro 2020 with his country. Therefore, his form has caught the eye, with reports claiming that Wanderers are ready to test Cardiff’s resolve with a £7m offer.
Whilst a sale can’t be rule out, Wales Online have revealed that it will take an offer in excess of £10m for the Championship side to consider cashing in on their key man.
The 29-year-old has featured in four games for Mick McCarthy’s side in the current campaign, scoring once in the win at Blackpool.
However, after arriving back late because of his involvement with Wales, Moore has only started one league game.
Should the former Wigan man leave, it would mean he has only spent over a year with the capital city club, but with Moore’s deal expiring in 2023, his value could drop next year as he enters the final 12 months of his contract.
Can you name the Cardiff City player who has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
This could be a nervy end to the window for Cardiff because Moore is a very effective player for the team and his goal return last season was outstanding.
So, there’s no getting away from the fact that he would be surely missed, with the team lacking a natural goalscorer after the target man.
But, Cardiff are right to demand a big fee for Moore and £7m wouldn’t be acceptable. If an offer of above £10m comes in it will clearly cause a rethink among the board and McCarthy will need to have a replacement lined up if that’s the case.
