It comes as no surprise Peterborough’s Craig Mackail-Smith is attracting Premiership clubs after his prolific goal scoring has helped lift posh into the championship, once again.
The 27 year old has been forcing the opposition’s number one to pick the ball from the back of net for fun, week in week out at London road in his most impressive season yet which has seen him hit the target 35 times in 56 games.
According to tuttomercatoweb.com Everton, QPR and Wigan have also joined Norwich in offering the hit man a way out of the club he has spent five emotional season’s which have involved three promotions and one relegation.
His time leading the line for Peterborough has allowed him to rack up a sensational 99 goals during 211 appearances for the club.
His recent form is almost certain to land him the opportunity to finally test his pedigree at the top level, and with Mackail-Smith refusing to extend his contract that ends next summer it looks as though player and club are set to Part Company.
Norwich had a bid turned down of £2.5 million according to the Daily mail and Darragh MacAnthony, posh’s chairman has placed a £3 million price tag on the danger man, which you have to feel is an absolute bargain in the current climate.
For the price tag and for any of the above clubs, plus many more he would certainly be worth taking the chance. During his fantastic campaign he has topped every goal scorer amongst England’s top four divisions and I believe earned the right to have a shot at the big stage.
I think we will see what the front man is really made of in the coming season.
