Sunderland leading leeds united in a battle race to sign 60 goal in 155 games premier league striker

Sunderland has emerged as the frontrunner in the race to secure the signing of Kieffer Moore from Bournemouth, as indicated by journalist Alan Nixon. Despite Leeds United expressing a keen interest in Moore, the Black Cats currently hold an advantage in the pursuit of his signature. Moore, who has found himself out of favor at Bournemouth this season, is eager to secure regular playing time in the Championship.

The former Cardiff striker has been limited to just 11 appearances for Andoni Iraola’s team this season, with no starts in the Premier League despite being part of the squad 15 times. His only starts have come in cup competitions, including a recent goal in the FA Cup against QPR. Although Bournemouth is willing to sell Moore if the right bid comes in, Dominick Solanke and Justin Kluivert currently stand ahead of him, making it unlikely for him to regain a spot in the side this season.

While no deal has been finalized, reports suggest that Sunderland values the signing more than Leeds. Despite Leeds’ strong attacking performance this season, Sunderland’s striker Nazariy Rysin has managed only one goal in ten Championship matches, emphasizing their need for additional firepower.

According to Transfermarkt, Moore’s current market value is approximately £2.5 million, making him a cost-effective option considering his track record of over 60 goal contributions in 155 games in the English second tier.

Sunderland is gearing up for a crucial league match against second-placed Ipswich Town on Saturday, aiming to bounce back from a recent defeat to rivals Newcastle United. Securing Moore’s signing could provide the team with a much-needed boost in their pursuit of a playoff spot at the end of the season. The Bournemouth target man, a proven goal-scorer in the Championship, is motivated to prove himself after falling out of favor with the team he helped secure promotion to the Premier League in 2022.
