Adrian Grbic TEAMtalk

Adrian Grbic is attracting the attention of a host of clubs including Crystal Palace and Brighton, according to TEAMtalk sources.

The Austrian sensation has been brilliant for Clermont, who are pushing for promotion from France’s second tier.

The 23-year-old striker moved to France last summer on a free transfer from Austrian side Altach, and he has hit the ground running with 17 goals and four assists.

Clubs from around Europe have been flocking to Ligue 2 this season to watch Grbic and Le Havre’s Tino Kadewere, who was snapped up by Lyon at the end of January.

Le Havre announced it had reached a deal to sell Zimbabwe’s Tino Kadewere to Lyon, who was immediately loaned back until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old, who has 20 Ligue 2 goals this term, reportedly signed for around £13m on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Now a host of sides are looking at the former Austria Under-21 attacker, with Palace and Brighton leading the chase, whilst Old Firm duo Celtic and Rangers are also understood to have checked on him.

Vienna-born Grbic is under contract with the central French side until June 2022 and they may well be ready to cash in on the striker this summer.
