Luton Town cast eyes over Ipswich Town forward Tyreece Simpson

Luton Town have been credited with an interest in Ipswich Town striker Tyreece Simpson, as per a report from The Telegraph.


The report states that the Hatters are provided with divisional competition from Huddersfield Town and Middlesbrough, with Simpson a "major target" for Carlos Corberan's side.


With a contract expiring next summer, the Ipswich forward has rejected a new deal at his hometown club, and subsequently, an offer around the £250,000 mark could tempt the Tractor Boys into selling.


Embarking on a loan spell at Swindon Town last season, the 20-year-old netted nine times in 25 appearances under Ben Garner's stewardship, operating within a 4-3-3 system for the majority of the campaign.


Enjoying a fruitful temporary stint with the Robins, the young forward was recalled near the end of January by the League One outfit, however, he did not go on to feature in what remained of the third-tier campaign in Suffolk.


Simpson has also caught the attention at Peterborough United, with the East Anglian Daily Times claiming that Posh are keen admirers of the exciting front man.


However, Peterborough's director of football Barry Fry later spoke to the Peterborough Telegraph about the Tractor Boys being reluctant to sell to a potential rival at the top end of League One next season.


A physical forward, who links the play well, parallels can be drawn to the situation of Elijah Adebayo when he was plying his trade at Walsall.


Like the current Luton front man, the ceiling is incredibly high for Simpson and he is a raw talent, whilst he has also just enjoyed goalscoring success in League Two.


It remains to be seen exactly how interested Luton are in Simpson, as he could be a consideration if Adebayo is to depart this summer.
