Sunderland are keeping tabs on Deportivo La Coruna striker Florin Andone, according to the Sunderland Echo.

The Romania forward, who featured at Euro 2016, has reportedly attracted attention from a number of clubs following an impressive start to his career at Deportivo.

He has five goals in 14 league appearances.

Adding another striker to the squad will be a priority for David Moyes when the January transfer window opens, with the club heavily reliant on Jermain Defoe and Victor Anichebe.

But with Sunderland £140million in debt, January business is expected to be limited with the club also close to the salary cap for wages.

The 23-year-old has 32 shots on target so far this season – the fourth best registry in LaLiga behind Cristiano Ronaldo (57), Messi (37) and Bale (35); but in terms of effectiveness, he is more precise with a 62.5% success rate compared to Cristiano Ronaldo’s 47.4% and Messi’s 56.8%. Averaging two shots per game, Andone is looking keen to replicate his figures from last season when he hit 21 goals for Córdoba – just one away from ending as the top scorer in the division – the prize going to Elche’s Sergio León on 22.
