Premier League pair Bournemouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to battle it out for the signature of Huddersfield Town forward Karlan Grant in January, according to The Sun.

Both the Cherries and Wolves will be looking to bolster their attacking options when the transfer window reopens, as they look to push on in the top flight this term.

Grant is no stranger to the Premier League, having featured in it for a Huddersfield side who struggled in it last term and who were relegated.

The former Charlton Athletic forward has not dwelt on that disappointment though, and has hit the ground running in the Championship, bagging nine goals in the division this term, with just Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ollie Watkins having more than him.

Bournemouth are not short of attacking options, but with the reliability of Callum Wilson fitness wise always being an issue, they are looking for a solid back up for the England man, and Grant is the man they look to have identified.

Wolves are not the freest scoring side in the Premier League, so the more strikers they can have in their ranks the better it will be for Nuno Espirito Santo, especially with the Molineux outfit likely to be competing both domestically and in Europe deep into 2020.

Huddersfield will need to weigh up whether they want to cash in on the 22-year-old in January, especially as his goals have led them away from the relegation zone in the second tier, but without them they could easily be sucked in again.

The Terriers got Grant for just £2 million from Charlton last January, but if they do decide to sell him, they will be demanding a lot more than that, and can rebuild in the key areas with such a financial windfall.

Bournemouth and Wolves are sure to follow the situation with the attacker over the coming months, as they plot to beat each other to his signature in January.
