Sheffield Wednesday were interested in signing Aberdeen striker Sam Cosgrove, but are not willing to meet the Pittodrie side’s asking price, the (Evening Express).

The Championship side reportedly enquired about signing the player in the January transfer window, but were not willing to pay what Aberdeen want for the forward.

Cosgrove has scored 47 goals in his time at Aberdeen. In the last two seasons he has been prolific. He scored 21 goals in season 18-19, and 23 last season. However, this season hasn’t been as prolific for the player.

Been in fine form in previous two seasons

Injury issues have contributed to the fact that he has scored only three goals so far this season. However, his fine form in the last few seasons means that clubs will still be interested in signing the player. As has reportedly been the case with Sheffield Wednesday.

Cosgrove’s form also means that Aberdeen will be demanding good money for any deal that will be done. Money that it seems Sheffield Wednesday aren’t willing to spend.

Would the player be keen on move?

As for the player, who knows if he would have been interested in a move to Sheffield Wednesday. After all, they are struggling at the wrong end of the Championship table.

The player might not have wanted to swap battling for Europe with Aberdeen for a relegation battle in England. Only time will tell if the Championship come back in for the player. With the transfer window closing in under a week’s time, Cosgrove’s future at Aberdeen will become clearer soon.

In the meantime, the player is set to feature for Aberdeen on Wednesday night, when the Dons take on St Johnstone.
