CHERRIES are set to battle Wolves to sign Huddersfield Town striker Karlan Grant, according to a report in The Sun.

The forward has impressed in the Championship this season, notching nine goals already for the Terriers in 15 appearances.

And that form is reportedly "expected to attract Premier League bids" when the transfer window opens in January.

Grant, 22, was plucked from League One Charlton Athletic by Huddersfield less than a year ago for a reported £2million and he scored four top-flight goals as the Terriers unsuccessfully battled against relegation.

And he is now part of one of the Championship's form teams under new boss Danny Cowley.

Cherries currently have three senior central strikers in their squad. Callum Wilson currently leads the scoring charts with five, two ahead of Saturday's match-winner Joshua King, while Dominic Solanke is yet to find the net.

Discussing the prospect of bids for his stars, Cowley said: "I only worry if other clubs don't want my players because it's a bit like having a girlfriend isn't it? If you've got a girlfriend nobody else wants, maybe you question why she's your girlfriend.

"It's the same for players. If you've got good players then it's natural that other people would want them."
