Derby County are planning to boost their strikeforce in January with Reading’s Nick Blackman and Norwich’s Lewis Grabban among their targets, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.
Derby boss Paul Clement is keen to add to his attacking options next month as he wants to bolster his side’s promotion bid in the second half of the season.
Derby drew a blank in Sunday’s goalless draw at Sheffield Wednesday and Clement is keen to bring in a proven goalscorer who could help fire his side to promotion to the Premier League.
Reading forward Blackman is thought to figure highly on Derby’s wanted list with the striker impressing this season for Reading.
Blackman has scored 11 goals in all competitions this season and the player has yet to agree a new deal at Reading with his current contract due to expire next summer.
Grabban’s future at Norwich has also been the subject of speculation since the summer after Bournemouth saw three bids turned down for the player.
Grabban has recently won his place back in the Norwich starting XI and admitted he was keen to establish himself in Alex Neil’s plans, but he could be the subject of new interest in January.
