Aberdeen have been linked with a summer swoop for Motherwell striker Curtis Main. The Scottish Sun is reporting that the Dons are set to offer the player a deal, as his contract expires in the summer.

However, the report also claims that the player’s preference is to return to England, so the move for Main could be in vain.

The player has scored six goals for the Steelmen this season, which isn’t a lot. However, Aberdeen have struggled for goals this season.

The notable exception is top scorer Sam Cosgrove, who has scored 18 goals this season. No other player at Pittodrie has reached double figures in scoring this season.

Even though Main hasn’t scored that many goals, a move for the player does make sense. McInnes’ thinking must be that he should be able to reach double figures at least for the Dons if he gets the service from midfield.

Of course, should the player deicide to return to England, then the Dons will have to explore other options.

The bottom line though, is that Aberdeen are in need of attacking players. Both Greg Stewart and Gary Mackay-Steven are out of contract at the end of the season.

Therefore, the Dons need to get more players in. Should he decide to move to Aberdeen, Main could be a decent addition to the squad.
