Sources: Swansea City and Bristol City submit bids for Luton Town star Harry Cornick

Swansea City and Bristol City have submitted bids for Luton Town striker Harry Cornick, sources have told Football Insider.

The Championship duo are looking for striking reinforcements before next week’s transfer deadline with Michael Obafemi and Antoine Semenyo on the verge of leaving their respective clubs.

Cornick, 27, is on the wanted list for both Swansea and Bristol City with the player in the final six months of his contract at Luton.

Luton are reluctant to lose Cornick this month as they want to keep their squad intact and maintain their push for promotion this season.

Rob Edwards has used Cornick primarily as a squad player this season, and he showed his worth in his latest appearance by scoring and assisting in the 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

Cornick has made 19 Championship appearances for Luton this season, scoring once and assisting three times.

But his game time has been limited to brief cameos, with only one full 90-minute game under his belt this season.

Cornick is currently enjoying his sixth season at Luton having joined the Hatters for an undisclosed fee in 2017 from Bournemouth.

The Cherries signed Cornick back in 2013 after watching him score 17 goals in 33 appearances for non-league side Christchurch the season prior.

However, Cornick’s only appearance for Bournemouth came in a 19-minute FA Cup cameo in the 2014/15 season.

His time on the south coast consisted mostly of loan moves, with Bournemouth sending him out on seven separate occasions.

But after impressive spells at Yeovil Town, Leyton Orient and Gillingham, Luton made a permanent move for Cornick in August 2017.
