Championship club Wigan Athletic have reportedly made an audacious bid of  £3 million for Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford.

The 22-year-old had been regarded as one of the most promising youngsters around England following his fine spells with Milton Keynes Dons and Middlesbrough. However, the striker struggled in the Premier League last season while on loan at Crystal Palace and then Norwich City. With Bamford failing to prove himself at the highest level, Chelsea are believed to be ready to offload the striker this summer and Bamford also wants to prove himself away from the Blues.

 

According to reports in Daily Mail, another championship side Aston Villa have also shown interest in the striker and it is expected that Roberto Di Matteo’s side have a chance of persuading him to join them with Wigan’s attempt likely to fail at this stage.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
