Football Insider claim that the Shrews are hoping to poach the former Pompey target, who has yet to sign a new deal at Charlton.

Aneke scored 16 goals in 41 games as the Addicks just missed out on the play-offs this season.

The former Arsenal forward is now a free agent and Steve Cotterill is supposedly keen to bring him to Shewsbury.

The Shropshire outfit have already signed Luke Leahy and Matthew Pennington.

Sykes eyed by Ipswich

Ipswich are hoping to snap-up Mark Sykes on a free transfer, according to The Sun on Sunday.

The midfielder is out of contract at Oxford, having penned a two-and-a-half year deal when arriving from Glenavon in January 2019.

Sykes featured 42 times as Karl Robinson's side's came to an end after suffering play-off semi-final defeat to Blackpool.

Paul Cook's plotting a major overhaul at Ipswich and Sykes is one player who could be part of that.

Grigg wanted back at Wigan

The Sun on Sunday report that Wigan are keen for Will Grigg to return.

The striker was a fans’ favourite at the DW Stadium before joining Sunderland in a multi-million pound deal in January 2019.

Things haven’t gone to plan for Grigg at the Stadium of Light and he spent the second half of this term on loan at MK Dons, where he netted eight times in 20 games.

The Dons would reportedly like the ex-Brentford forward back.

However, Wigan have also been credited with interest after they retained the League One status in remarkable fashion.

Grigg has a year left on his Sunderland deal.
