Chester FC joint-manager Anthony Johnson says he and Bernard Morley ‘would love’ to bring Jason Oswell to the Blues, report The Chester Chronicle.
The 25-year-old netted 25 times for Stockport County in the National League North last season but has been omitted from County’s squad line-up for the new season and is a free agent. The former Crewe Alexandra youngster, who had a prolific spell in the Welsh Premier League with Newtown, has been linked with a switch to the Blues but is also understood to be attracting interest from Wrexham and Port Vale, among others.
But a switch to full-time football could prove problematic for Oswell, who lives in Chester and works as a physiotherapist at the Countess of Chester Hospital. And while no deal is close for the striker, Johnson says the Blues are very keen.
“We would love to sign Jason Oswell,” Johnson told the Chronicle.
“We didn’t see any better than him last season in the National League North and he was banging the goals in and finished just behind Jason Gilchrist (Southport) I think. He’s a top finisher and would be an asset to this football club.”
