Report: Bristol City show interest in sought-after Grimsby Town striker Omar Bogle

Bristol City are the latest higher division club to have looked at Bogle, according to the Sunday People.

Bristol City are showing an interest in Grimsby Town striker Omar Bogle, according to the Sunday People.

Bogle is the top scorer in all of England's top four divisions with 16 goals in 19 appearances in what is his first ever Football League campaign.

And the 23-year-old could be ideal for the Robins, who sold Jonathan Kodjia to Aston Villa in the summer.

Though on-loan striker Tammy Abraham has impressed since moving to Ashton Gate from Chelsea, a recent run of one goal in eight matches for the teenage striker perhaps highlights the need for another player to relieve some of his burden.

Grimsby recently turned down a £250,000 bid from League Two rivals Barnet for Bogle, and the Mariners are likely to want seven figures for the former Solihull Moors man.

Leeds United are also credited with an interest in the Sunday People's report, while Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest have previously been linked.

Bogle was on West Bromwich Albion's books at the same time as current Leeds pair Chris Wood and Kemar Roofe.

Bristol City looked to be in play-off contention this season, but have dropped to 14th after winning one of their last six league matches.

Would Bogle be a good fit for Bristol City?
