AFSTZ: Sunderland target Sow
Sunderland are targeting the signing of Fenerbahce forward Moussa Sow, with the 29-year-old ready to leave Turkey.
The former Lille man scored 15 goals in 33 appearances for the Turkish outfit last season, and has rejected the opportunity to sign a new deal with the club.
TalkSport understands the Black Cats have held talks with Sow’s representatives over a move, while a fee is yet to be agreed with Fenerbahce.
Sow has a year left on his current contract, but Sunderland are prepared to offer a four-year deal to tempt him to partner up with Jermaine Defoe.
Sunderland struggled once again last season, and took the expert work of Dick Advocaat to save them from relegation. So the signing Sow would provide them with the firepower to improve on last season’s poor displays.
