According to James Piercy of Bristol Live, Sheffield Wednesday are interested in Jonson Clarke-Harris. The 25-year-old has been in fantastic form for Bristol Rovers and has a number of Championship clubs scouting him as a result.
Clarke-Harris has scored and created 12 goals in 23 games in all competitions, contributing 30% of Rovers’ goals in League One this season. He’s spent nearly 12 months at the Memorial Stadium, netting a total of 22 goals in 40 outings.
Bristol Live say representatives from Reading, Middlesbrough, Luton Town, Preston North End, Hull City, QPR, Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic and Wigan Athletic have watched the £2m-rated striker.
Garry Monk is in the market for a new centre-forward after losing Steven Fletcher to injury. He’s expected to be out of action for two months. Fernando Forestieri has been out with a knee problem too, causing him to miss Wednesday’s last 10 games in all competitions.
In their absence, the Owls manager has Jordan Rhodes (3), Atdhe Nuhiu (3) and Sam Winnall (1) at his disposal, but the three centre-forwards have only scored seven goals between them this season. Clarke-Harris could be a good addition if Wednesday can beat out all the competition.
