Ipswich Town have agreed a £750,000 fee with Bristol Rovers for Ellis Harrison, according to the East Anglian Daily Times.
The striker scored 14 goals in 49 appearances for the Gas in all competition’s last season and has been on the radar of several clubs this summer.
Harrison will have a medical at Portman Road and once personal terms have been agreed, he will complete a move to the Championship outfit.
Paul Hurst has been on the lookout for a striker with Martyn Waghorn linked with a move to Sheffield United.
Barnsley forward Tom Bradshaw has also been on Hurst’s hit-list, but that deal could now be on the back burner after the impending capture of Harrison.
Once the transfer is complete, the 24-year-old will become the new Ipswich boss’ fourth signing of the summer.
Ellis Harrison was one of League One’s brightest stars last season.
The Gas finished 13th in League One, but the striker played an integral role in them avoiding relegation to League Two.
Ipswich capturing the forward could mean they dismiss their interest in Tom Bradshaw but the Bristol Rovers forward is the perfect fit for the Tractor Boys.
Just shy of 6ft in height, the attacker has pace and strength in abundance and will more than capable of adjusting to life in the Championship.
Ipswich are getting a solid player, who at 24-years-old, is at the perfect age to start progressing his career to help change recent fortunes at Portman Road.
