Wigan Athletic are eyeing a £1 million move for Grimsby Town striker Omar Bogle when the transfer window reopens in January, the Sun reports (Goals pullout, page 15).

Bogle has been a Football League player for less than two months but already has eight goals to his name, including the winner against Mansfield Town on Saturday.

And the 23-year-old's early form is said to have caught the eye of Championship side Wigan, who have scored twice in their last five league outings.

The Latics, who have averaged little more than a goal per game overall this season, could certainly do with the extra firepower, although the report implies they might not be alone in their Bogle pursuit.

Formerly on the books of Scottish giants Celtic and Midlands duo West Bromwich Albion and Birmingham City, Bogle only arrived at Grimsby in summer 2015 from Solihull Moors.

13 goals followed as the Mariners secured promotion from the National League at long last, but Bogle is already fast closing in on that tally.

Wigan currently have four senior strikers on their books, although only Will Grigg has started a league game all season.
