The player has been a possible target for some weeks but is seen as one with “raw talent” who would be a “big gamble.”
And that may not be the ideal scenario as the club continue the hunt for a couple of strikers and left back.
ClaretandHugh was told: “The player is talking to the co chairman but no hasty decisions will be made.”
With the club having sufficient finds to cover four more players, theclub remains ultra careful after the likes of Modibo Maiga and Alou Diarra, fail and simply refuse to take expensive risks.
A source said: “The player definitely has talent but no deal will be done unless the club can get real value for money.
“Nothing has changed. It’s all about doing a deal cheap enough to perhaps take the gamble.”
