Owls boss Paul Sturrock is set to make a £300,000 swoop for highly-rated young Algerian defender Madjid Bougherra, who impressed on-loan at Crewe this season.
As reported on Vital Sheffield Wednesday last week, Wednesday are among a host of Premiership and Championship clubs chasing the Gueugnon defender, and are now willing to put their money where their mouth is with a 300k bid to bring Bougherra to Hillsborough.
Sturrock has said he wants to bring at least five new players in to boost his squad ahead of the 2006/2007 season, and has been given the go-ahead to increase the wage budget at the club by Chairman Dave Allen.
The 23-year-old moved to Crewe on-loan at the end of January in a bid to help them avoid relegation to League One. He appeared 11 times for the Railwaymen, including the 2-0 victory over the Owls at Gresty Road in April.
Alex only lost three times in the eleven Bougherra appeared in since his loan-move, but it was not enough to keep the Railwaymen in the Championship. The French-born defender impressed a number of English clubs during his stay here, and his French club Gueugnon are likely to accept offers around the £300k mark.
