Sunderland are willing to pay top wages to make sure they win the race to sign Kieffer Moore on loan, but there remains no decision taken by Bournemouth on the striker, according to journalist Alan Nixon.
The Black Cats sold Ross Stewart to Southampton in the summer transfer window and some feel the striker has not been replaced.
Sunderland’s attackers have struggled to step up to score the goals needed and the club want to sign a striker this month.
They have a strong interest in Moore, the Bournemouth striker who is drawing interest from several Championship teams.
Although they haven’t made up their minds about Moore, the Cherries may approve a loan.
In addition, Sunderland is willing to pay top dollar to secure Moore’s transfer to the northeast should he decide to go on loan.
Moore has made eleven appearances for Bournemouth this season in all competitions, tallying two goals.
Sunderland had the fewest goals scored in the top eleven with 37 in 27 games, placing them just outside the playoff spots in the Championship table.
