According to the Bristol Post, Bristol City are keen on signing Bournemouth’s Lewis Grabban.

The report claims that the Robbins are looking to bolster their striker ranks this summer and see Grabban as the ideal man to partner the highly-rated Jonathan Kodjia upfront.

City experienced a rather mixed return to the Championship this past season, struggling at the foot of the table after showing so much promise during their League One title victory.

Lee Johnson replaced the sacked Steve Cotterill and steadied the ship at Ashton Gate, and there were signs towards the end of the campaign of the club showing their potential in the second tier.

The striker positions have been identified as an area to strengthen this summer, and the Bristol Post report how Bournemouth’s Grabban is among the names the club have targeted.

Grabban only joined the Cherries from Norwich City last January, yet he found first-team opportunities hard to come by with the likes of Callum Wilson and Benik Afobe ahead of him in the pecking order.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe could be tempted to sell him this summer if they can recoup a sizeable fee for him, and City certainly have the means to make them a worthwhile offer.

Grabban, 28, notched 12 goals for Norwich during their successful 2014/15 Championship campaign.
