Ipswich Town’s David McGoldrick is the number one target for Cardiff City as they hope to finalise one more deal before the window shuts.
A season-ending injury to Danny Ward placed even more importance on Neil Warnock securing a striker this month and the Bluebirds have been linked with several players.
Lewis Grabban was one man on their radar but talks have hit a standstill in recent weeks. That means, according to Wales Online, McGoldrick has once again become a prime target for Cardiff.
The Irish international should also be relatively cheap, as his contract with the Tractor Boys expires at the end of the season. The same report suggests that a fee of up to £1m should be enough for Ipswich to sell.
The former Coventry forward has hit six goals in 20 league games this season, although he hasn’t scored since the 2-2 draw with Hull City in mid-November.
In fairness to McGoldrick, he has been used in various roles, such as playing out wide or behind the striker and that versatility may appeal to Warnock.
Cardiff have had a very good window so far and if they can end by adding McGoldrick then Warnock has to be delighted.
The Bluebirds have a strong XI but the depth of quality at the club has been questionable which is why McGoldrick would be perfect.
He isn’t going to start every game with Kenneth Zohore around but he is a great option to have and is available at a cut-price. It’s a smart signing if it comes off.
