Huddersfield Town will face plenty of competition if they want to sign German striker Simon Terrode.
The 28-year-old, with second-tier side VfL Bochum, is well regarded and well known to Town’s head coach David Wagner.
Town have already signed German defenders Chris Loewe and Michael Hefele for next season.
And suggestions Terrode is looking at a move to England have led to inevitable links with the John Smith’s Stadium club.

But Terrode is under contract until 2017, so would command a fee at this stage.
And the likes of Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham, all with bigger budgets than Town, have also been linked.
Terrode’s agent Dirk Hebel said: “Simon’s contract in Bochum only runs until 2017. We currently are looking at the market.
“In England there are clubs that could be very sexy.”
Terrode, from the North-West city of Bocholt, has spent his whole career in Germany.
He started out at Duisburg and also played for Cologne and Union Berlin before joining Bochum in 2014.
