Bristol City reportedly enter the race for Aston Villa target

Bristol Post reports that Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson is looking to sign Bournemouth forward Lewis Grabban, who is also being monitored by Aston Villa and Wolverhampton.

Grabban had an impressive first half of the season that he spent on loan at Sunderland. He scored twelve goals in 19 games, and it was enough for his parent club Bournemouth to take him back six months before the loan’s end.

The ‘Cherries’ would surely like to get some cash for the 29-year-old player, and there are plenty of clubs willing to pay for his services.

Bristol City have a good chance for the Premier League’ promotion, but manager Lee Johnson believes Bobby Ried needs support in the attack in order to boost his side’s chances.

Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce, on the other hand, has huge problems in the offensive department, as Jonathan Kodjia and Gabby Agbonlahor are struggling with injuries, and he would like to bring the former Norwich City forward at Villa Park.

Of course, Bournemouth will benefit the most from the situation, as they will be able to make the maximum profit from Grabban’s sale.
