It appears Huddersfield Town are in the hunt for Leyton Orient striker Josh Koroma this summer. As reported by The Sun, The Terriers are leading the hunt for the frontman. The report claims that Huddersfield have now lodged a £500,000 bid for the player, which meets Orient’s valuation.
The report does however also mention Sunderland’s interest in the player.
In January, Sunderland were said to be keen on the player. As reported by the Roker Report, Sunderland had a £200,000 bid for the player rejected on January transfer deadline day.
But now that Sunderland know £500,000 could secure his signature, should they make a move again?
Koroma had an excellent season at Leyton Orient last term, scoring 11 goals as they secured promotion back to the Football League.
Sunderland, meanwhile, came up short in their own pursuit of promotion.
Huddersfield, therefore, have the advantage of being a Championship team over Sunderland.
However, Sunderland remain a massive club and the facilities on offer on Wearside make them an attractive proposition to any potential recruit.
For an extra £300,000 on their January offer Sunderland could at least rival Huddersfield for Koromoa’s potential signature.
It is certainly a deal they should consider rekindling, especially if they fail in pursuit of Ayr United goal-machine Lawrence Shankland.
