Sunderland: Danny Graham emerges as potential summer signing

Sunderland: Danny Graham emerges as potential summer signing - League One

Sunderland are showing interest in former Blackburn Rovers striker Danny Graham, according to Alan Nixon.

After failing to gain promotion from League One for a second consecutive season in 2019/20, Black Cats manager Phil Parkinson could look to bolster his attacking options, having seen the likes of Charlie Wyke and Will Grigg struggle to find the back of the net on a consistent basis.

Linked with a potential move for Sydney FC striker Adam Le Fondre, the Wearsiders are also looking towards former Watford, Swansea, Wolves and Middlesbrough man Graham.

The 34-year-old striker recently left Blackburn on a free transfer, ending a four-and-a-half year stay at Ewood Park.

Journalist Alan Nixon was among the first to report Sunderland’s interest in Graham, tweeting:

Graham has scored an impressive 53 goals in 152 appearances for the Championship club, despite a rather lacklustre 2019/20 season which saw him net just four goals in 38 appearances.

Graham’s poor goalscoring record last season could be viewed as a sign of a player in decline but the striker is vastly experienced and he could turn out to be a useful addition for the League One club next term.

Sunderland, however, may be better suited to find a younger option and build for the future instead of going for a short-term fix in a man who was previously at the club but loaned out four times during his Wearside tenure.
