Hull City have made an £8 million bid for Fulham striker Ross McCormack, the Derby Telegraph understands.
The ex-Leeds United striker is set to be rewarded with a new contract at Craven Cottage, but this has seemingly not deterred Hull City.
Tigers boss Steve Bruce has seen attempts to sign Brentford’s star forward Andre Gray rebuffed in recent weeks and it is now understood they have turned their attention on signing McCormack.
After splashing out £11 million on McCormack last season, Fulham will undoubtedly be keen to keep hold of the man who netted 19 times for them in what was a somewhat disappointing first season back in the Sky Bet Championship.
McCormack has a wealth of Championship experience and over the last few seasons has certainly earned himself the reputation of being a reliable goalscorer in this league.
After losing strikers such as Dame N’Doye and with Nikica Jelavic looking likely to leave the club, the Tigers are in need of a striker who can fire them to glory this season – by signing the former Leeds United man, it will increase those chances considerably.
The Scotland international has a wealth of Football League experience, having plied his trade at Cardiff City, Leeds United and Fulham – so if Hull did manage to attain the services of the striker, it would be a major boost to their promotion hopes and aspirations.
