“Having now secured the signing of a centre-back in Nayef Aguerd today [Monday], the club are now looking to sign another 5-6 players, including a forward.
“It seems that having made initial inquiries for a number of forwards, the club is preparing to submit a formal offer for the former on-loan Southampton forward.”
