Huddersfield striker Karlan Grant has been subject to interest from Premier League clubs over the past week, with manager Danny Cowley not surprised.
After a torrid start to life back in the Championship, Huddersfield have undergone a resurgence of late, as they are on a run of seven games without defeat. The unbeaten run has seen them climb out of the relegation zone up to 18th and just nine points off the play-off places.
Since Danny Cowley’s appointment in early September, Huddersfield have gained 15 points out of their 16-point total, showing how remarkable the turnaround has been. One player who has been a constant top performer regardless of Huddersfield’s bad and good form is striker Karlan Grant.
Grant is Huddersfield’s top scorer and talisman this season with nine goals and two assists to his name in the league this season.
His last goal was the only one in the Terriers’ 1-0 win away at fellow in-form side Brentford. Grant joined the club last January from then-League One side Charlton and has been on top form ever since, and has unsurprisingly generating a lot of interest from the top-tier.
When speaking to the club’s official site ahead of the weekend’s fixture, manager Cowley had this to say on the current speculation: “It’s no surprise that there’s interest in Karlan Grant.
“He’s becoming really potent with his left foot which is allowing him to come inside and be successful.
“He’s working incredibly hard on his game and he’s definitely worked exceptionally hard this week.”
There is obviously no surprise that Premier League clubs want Grant, being a young striker that is proving his quality in the second-tier already, having scored a handful in the top flight before Huddersfield were relegated last season.
Grant’s best option now is to to keep his mind solely focused on Huddersfield Town and mount a charge for the play-offs while they are in such good form.
