Ipswich Town are said to be eyeing a move for their former player Martyn Waghorn, with Football League World sources having reported in recent days that the League One side are looking to snare the forward away from Derby County this summer.
The veteran has been in mixed form for the Rams this season and notched up five goals and four assists as Wayne Rooney’s men only just staved off the threat of relegation on the final day of their Sky Bet Championship campaign.
Waghorn originally joined the Midlands club from the Tractor Boys back in 2018 and has since become a regular feature during his three seasons at Pride Park.
However having only started 21 games this term, he could well seek a move in search of more regular game time after being in and out of the side over the past few months.

The Derby man’s contract is also expiring in just over a months time and as a result, it is said that Paul Cook’s side have registered their interest in bringing the versatile frontman back to Portman Road as Ipswich begin a rebuilding job of their own.
Waghorn previously scored 16 goals in 46 games for Town during a one season stay in East Anglia and would surely be open to listening to what proposal they can put forwards.
Cook’s men will be aiming to secure promotion from the third tier next term after falling short once again this season and as a result, Waghorn may well be keen to join what is an exciting project on paper.
