It’s been a slightly frustrating summer for Sunderland so far, as the club is on the hunt for a few new players before the end of the transfer window.
The Black Cats have been looking for a strike since the departure of Joel Asoro and were heavily linked with a move for former Cheltenham Town forward, Mohamed Eisa.
Since then, the club have managed to sign Jerome Sinclair on loan from Watford for the season.
While Sinclair was a much-needed addition, the club needs a more experienced striker to help their promotion campaign and according to The Mirror, Sunderland are set to beat Bolton Wanderers to Bradford city striker, Charlie Wyke.
Wyke has been in good form since he moved to Bradford City, having scored 23 goals in 62 games for the club. Before he moved to Bradford, Wyke scored 38 goals in 89 games for Carlisle United.
At 25-years-old, signing Wyke would be a great deal for Sunderland. What the club would be getting is a proven League One striker and who could be a star for the club.
While Jerome Sinclair and Josh Maja are both good young strikers, the Black Cats needed someone who had a solid goalscoring record and was experienced in the league.
If Sunderland can pull off the deal for Wyke, they’d finally have the striker the club need and possibly someone the fans can really get behind.
After a few weeks of hunting for a forward, Sunderland may have finally found their man.
Is the man you want Sunderland fans?
