Ryan Reynolds' Wrexham are competing with Championship clubs for Football League's hottest striker
| Last updated
Wrexham are facing competition from Championship sides for their top summer transfer target, reports say.
Phil Parkinson's side, flanked with investment from Hollywood pair Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, achieved promotion back to the Football League.
Wrexham accrued 111 points en route to the National League title and will now play in League Two for the first time since 2008 next term.
They already have a talented squad full of players who have played at a much higher level but Wrexham will need to bring in a few new additions to strengthen their side.
And according to the Daily Express, one player they have their eyes on Cheltenham Town striker Alfie May.
May hit 20 goals in League One in the 2022/23 season, finishing with a strike against Charlton Athletic on the final day of the campaign.
The former Doncaster Rovers man has 12 months left on his contract - with the option for a further year - but is a man in demand.
Championship sides Huddersfield, Millwall and Birmingham are all said to be interested in the 29-year-old, while Luton Town have also been keeping tabs along with a slew of other unnamed clubs.
Peterborough and Derby are monitoring the situation from League One, as well as League Two side Gillingham.
Wrexham have the finances to pay a sizeable transfer fee for May and will hope that their captain Ben Tozer can have a word.
Tozer played with May at Cheltenham before sealing a £200,000 switch to Wrexham and leading their promotion charge.
May, who came from Non-League before going professional in 2017, has a goal against Manchester City on his CV, having scored the opener in a FA Cup defeat at Whaddon Road.
Manager Wade Elliott was asked about May's future and whether he has played his last game of the club against Charlton.
He said: "The honest answer is no idea, but I'd be amazed if there wasn't interest because he's gone back to back with 20 goals, 43 goals in two seasons.
"I genuinely don't know [whether he will stay] - that's one for Micky [Moore] (director of football) and the board to fend off and deal with those situations."
