Aberdeen are set to swoop and sign Motherwell striker Curtis Main when his contract ends in the summer, according to a report, however, they could face competition for his signature.
The Press and Journal claim that Derek McInnes’ side are lining up a move for the 26-year-old to strengthen his squad this summer and add some more attacking depth.
Main has hit the net six times for the Steelmen so isn’t exactly a prolific marksman but he’s impressed in spells this season.
The striker has been at Fir Park for 18 months and the report claims it is unclear whether he wants to remain in Scottish football beyond this season.
The Dons have been heavily reliant on Sam Cosgrove for goals this season and adding another striker would hopefully take some of the burden off the young striker.
According to The Scotsman however, McInnes will face competition to sign Main from Premiership rivals Hearts so it could come down to which side puts together the more appealing package for the striker.
Before joining Motherwell, Main had spells with Portsmouth, Middlesbrough, Darlington and Doncaster and also had brief loan stints at Shrewsbury Town and Oldham Athletic.
