Norwich, Cardiff, Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest, Derby, Fulham & Wigan are all monitoring Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban.
Cardiff City have already met the in-demand striker’s release clause, while Middlesbrough had also been in talks with the player, although they have yet to finalise their offer.
With Cardiff signing strikers Adam Le Fondre & Federico Macheda last week, Middlesbrough looked to have edged ahead in the race to land Grabban after making him their top striking target this summer.
Reports are now suggesting that Norwich have entered the fray to land the 26-year-old, who scored 22 goals in the Championship last term.
Nottingham Forest, Derby, Fulham & Wigan are also thought to be monitoring the situation
