Huddersfield keeping close eye on Nahki
Bradford City striker Nahki Wells has emerged as a January target for Championship side Huddersfield Town, according to reports in the English media.
The Bantams’ superb Capital One Cup run has seen Wells’ stock rise considerably with the 22-year-old looking to help his side reach the Wembley final by defeating Aston Villa next week.
Wells struck the opener for Bradford in their 3-1 win over Villa in the semi-final first leg at Valley Parade and was instrumental in their wins over Wigan Athletic and Arsenal in the previous rounds.
However, Bradford would likely resist the temptation of cashing in on Wells, who is under contract until 2015, should they complete their giant-killing act over Villa.
Wells would also be reticent to leave Valley Parade and miss out on an opportunity of playing in a showpiece final of a major competition.
Huddersfield could test Bradford’s resolve, though, by offering marksman Lee Novak as a makeweight as they bid to land Wells before the end of the transfer window, according to
The Huddersfield Daily Examiner.
And if Villa were to reverse Bradford’s two-goal lead in Tuesday’s second leg then Town’s Championships rivals Wolves and Leeds could also follow up their interest in Wells.
The former Carlisle United man has scored 17 goals already this season.
