Hibs are plotting a £250,000 move for Forest Green Rovers striker Christian Doidge after the striker hit 18 goals last season, according to a report.
The Sunday Mail claims Hibs boss Paul Heckingbottom is a big fan of the striker, who had agreed on a deal to join Bolton permanently before their financial woes struck.
Doidge started the season on loan at Bolton before returning to Forest Green in January as the Trotters’ transfer embargo stopped them making the deal permanent.
After returning to his parent club though, Doidge hit a vein of good form, helping his side to the playoff semi-finals.
It seems Hibs have now turned their attention to Doidge after being priced out of a move for Marc McNulty.
The Hibees need to bring in at least one new striker this summer as Heckingbottom takes the reins for his first full season in charge at Easter Road.
After a strong finish to the last campaign following Heck’s appointment, there’s a lot of expectation that they continue that this season and make an impressive start to the season.
If he can’t add some firepower to his side quickly, then Heckingbottom could find things much tougher than he did last season.
