Tigers are keen to bring more goals to their front line next season.
Premier League new boys Hull City are keen on landing Sunderland front man Danny Graham this summer, according to reports in The Times.
The one-time England Under-20 international has only been at the Stadium of Light since the turn of the year, originally arriving in the north west from Swansea City in a deal worth £5 million on a three-and-a-half-year contract.
However, in his 11 Premier League outings for the top-flight strugglers, the 27-year-old failed to find the back of the net on one occasion, although Paolo Di Danio’s side did manage to survive being relegated to the Championship.
Sunderland’s new Italian head coach, though, is understood to be happy to let the striker leave the north-east giants this summer and the Tigers now appear to be in pole position to bring the player to the KC stadium next season.
Hull manager Steve Bruce knows that he must add more goal threat to his attack if the minnow are to confound the critics and remain in the Premier League in the 2013/14 campaign, and as well as Graham the former Manchester United captain is also thought to be targeting summer moves for Celtic forward Gary Hooper and Anderlecht attacker Ilombe Mboyo.
