Cardiff Still Targetting Big Striker

Cardiff Still Targetting Big Striker

Cardiff City are still targetting the 'big number 9' they have been seeking all close season and are desperate to land their man before the season opens on 11th August at home to Stoke.


In Robbie Fowler and Steve MacLean, they have the goalscoring prowess they need - while Warren Feeney and Jason Byrne will hope to put pressure on and force their way into contention.


It is the addition of a big striker to put himself about and provide Fowler with chances that Cardiff now want. The trouble is that clubs have inflated valuations of players, especially after Cardiff publicly received £5m from the sale of Michael Chopra to Sunderland.



Birmingham City's Rowan Vine remains a top target, Cardiff bid for the former Luton Frontman in January but were seriously outbid by the Blues then who are looking to recoup some money after their promotion. Vine scored just once in 10 games but looked lively and caused problems for defences (especially ours in a 1-0 defeat!).



Another long-time target and former Luton Town player Steve Howard is being considered. The 31 year old was a big player for Derby last season, scoring 16 goals and could do a good job again in the Championship.


It would be preferential to sign the new big striker as soon as possible to give them time to gel and form a partnership with the other stikers. The price appears the only stumbling block on the Vine transfer with Birmingham holding out for £2m and Cardiff remaining on their £1.2m offer.
