Striker wanted by two clubs.
Norwich City and Sunderland are both understood to have placed bids for Swansea City’s Danny Graham as they look to sign the unsettled striker.
Both have been tracking Graham, who started his career with Middlesbrough before joining Watford who sold him to Swansea City for £3.5million, throughout the January transfer window and have played their hand with separate bids, according to reports.

Sky Sports suggest that Norwich City have tabled a £5million bid for the 27-year-old striker, who will be allowed to leave the Liberty Stadium providing Swansea City are able to bring in a replacement, while the Press Association report that Sunderland have tabled an undisclosed figure to sign Graham.
Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill has been keen on signing a new striker to aid main goalscorer Steven Fletcher’s workload, while Norwich City want to bring in a new face to partner Grant Holt in attack.
Graham, who had also interested Premier League Reading and Queens Park Rangers, has been forced to play a bit-part role at Swansea City this season following Michael Laudrup’s arrival as manager. Laudrup’s signing Michu has been a revelation in attack and has kept Graham on the bench as a result.
