Steve Bruce has upped his bid for Wigan’s Charles N’Zogbia to £9million.
Sunderland boss Bruce had an £8m offer for the French winger rejected earlier this month.
But he has now stepped up the chase, boosted by the £24m bonanza from Darren Bent’s switch to Aston Villa.
Latics chief Roberto Martinez is reluctant to sell his biggest asset with his team involved in a relegation dogfight.
Bruce wants N’Zogbia, 24, to keep Sunderland’s European charge on track.

Steve Bruce is keen to spend big to bring in reinforcements at the Stadium of Light and he has some capital to do so now that Darren Bent has ran away to Villa Park, however is a move for Wigan winger Charles N’Zogbia an intelligent use of club funds?
The one time Newcastle United man is forever linked with that ‘big’ move but consistently fails to deliver on the promise of big things and a move to sign the DW Stadium wide man may prove out to be an expensive mistake.
Some will point to some occasional glimpses of quality and the fact that he is a capped French international but these points would not justify such a large fee being spent on a player who more often than not flatters to deceive.
