Sunderland are interested in signing Mo Eisa from Bristol City as the Black Cats aim to bolster their attacking options at this late stage of the transfer window.
Eisa has found himself outcast at Bristol City since arriving in the summer, with Pete O’Rourke reporting that the Black Cats are looking to take him on board.

So far this season Eisa has made only six appearances for the Robins, but he excelled in League Two with Cheltenham last season, scoring 23 goals.
But would the 24-year-old be a good addition at the Stadium of Light?
“It is a risk but I would take it.
“Eisa looked outstanding during his time with Cheltenham but has struggled since arriving at Bristol City.
“If Jack Ross can get his confidence back he would be a real weapon in League One. “
“Eisa hasn’t been proven at League One level, so there’s an element of risk.
“He has the right attributes, he’s fast and powerful, but is he tactically aware?
“He’s had one season in League Two and struggled at Bristol City.
“I’m not so sure on this one.”
“This would make a lot of sense.
“Eisa was fantastic in League Two but has struggled since making the move to Bristol City.
“However, he has a lot of potential and hasn’t really been given a chance at Ashton Gate.
“I think a step down could give him a good platform to perform and he could get the goals to fire Sunderland to promotion.”
