Wigan join Marlon King chase

Fulham were the favorites to lure striker Marlon King from Watford but as EatSleepSport reports, there is another club that has thrown its name into the pool.

Wigan Athletic have expressed their keen desire to sign the Championship striker this month and are ready to meet the demands of Watford. Wigan’s assistant manager Eric Black says:

We’ve shown an interest and it’s ongoing. Fulham are obviously interested as well, as are another couple of clubs because he’s obviously done exceptionally well for Watford this season.

Roy Hodgson, take notice. You have stiff competitors for King and you may have to step up the tempo to sign the player. There’s not even a week left for the Juanuray transfer window to shut up.
