Grimsby Town striker Omar Bogle is attracting interest from five different Championship clubs ahead of the upcoming January transfer window, according to sources from HITC Sport.
Championship quintet Brentford, Fulham, Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Norwich City are all vying for Bogle’s signature.
After a prolific season in the National League with Grimsby last year, many were wondering whether Bogle could reproduce the goods at a higher level.
He has taken to League Two with ease though and leads the way as top scorer in the fourth tier with 16 goals in 19 appearances for the Mariners.
He has also contributed two assists in the league and has seven goals in his last four appearances.
Bogle’s strength, pace and eye for goal are his key attributes and this is proving too hard for League Two defences to handle.
Inevitably, Bogle’s form has alerted a number of Championship clubs with the aforementioned five teams all said to be competing for his services.
After being released by West Brom as a youngster, the 24-year-old has had to ply his trade in the non-league pyramid with Solihull Moors and then Grimsby before earning his chance in the Football League.
With the January window fast approaching, it is difficult to see how Grimsby will be able to keep Bogle at the club with so many interested parties from the second tier.
Championship fans – would you take Bogle at your club? Can he make the step up two leagues and score goals in the Championship?
