Report: Sunderland keen on Aberdeen attacker Scott Wright

Sunderland are reportedly in the pursuit for attacker Scott Wright from Scottish top-flight club Aberdeen.

According to the Sun, the Black Cats are interested in the 22-year-old and League One rivals Ipswich Town are also keen.

It is understood that the two English teams are eyeing the versatile attacker and he would cost around £500,000.

Wright is someone that has mainly played as a centre-forward in his short career so far, but he can deployed as a left-winger or behind the striker.

The Scottish youngster has one goal in six appearances so far this campaign, which came in a Europa League qualifying match.


He had a brief loan spell at Dundee last season in the Scottish Premiership and is struggling to cement his spot in the Aberdeen XI.

TBR’s View:

The League One transfer window is still open for business until 2 September, so Sunderland could still do some business if they want.

Wright is hardly someone that has set the world alight with Aberdeen and it looks unlikely that he could arrive to make a serious impact at the Stadium of Light.

Manager Jack Ross has plenty of attacking options at his disposal and his team have had a solid start to the new campaign.

They have eight points from their opening four league fixtures and sit sixth in the table.
