Ipswich Town enter the race to sign 25-year-old striker

Tom Bradshaw has emerged as a target for Ipswich Town, according to The Mirror.

The Barnsley striker has a year left on his current deal and has been attracting interest from the Tractor Boy’s Championship rivals Millwall and Hull City.

Manager Paul Hurst is in the market for a striker with Martyn Waghorn looking more and more likely to to leave Portman Road this summer.

Sheffield United have reportedly made a £5 million to Ipswich for the striker.

Derby, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest have also been linked.

So should Waghorn go, Hurst wants the 25-year-old Barnsley man as a replacement.

Meanwhile, Ellis Harrison is also a player on Ipswich’s radar after a successful season with Bristol Rovers last year.

Blackburn Rovers are also reported to be keeping tabs on the striker who scored 14 goals in League One last year.

The Verdict

The chase for Tom Bradshaw is hotting up with three clubs now vying for his signature.

Millwall are the only club yet to have made an official approach for the striker

If Waghorn goes, Ipswich could well firm up their interest with a formal bid for the player.

Bradshaw is a different type of striker to Waghorn but is still capable enough of scoring plenty of goals at this level.

Ellison at Bristol Rovers is intriguing; however, you sense he is ready to make the step up to the Championship after a solid season in the division below.

If Ipswich do miss out on Bradshaw, they should do what they can do to sign Ellison.

If they somehow get both of their targets, then it more than compensates for the possible departure of Waghorn.
