LINCOLN are taking a sizeable interest in Morecambe striker Cole Stockton as his contract runs out.
Stockton, 29, has scored an impressive 10 goals this season.

Morecambe offered the striker a new deal in the summer but only on £2,000-a-week.
The 29-year-old has been the Shrimps' main man for the last three seasons.
The versatile forward helped fire the club to promotion into League One during the 2020-21 season.

Rotherham were interested in Stockton but were reluctant to make a big bid.
That is despite his strong form last season which helped Morecambe narrowly avoid relegation.
This all comes after Stockton was nominated for the SkyBet League One Player of the Month award for April.
However, the prize was claimed by Ipswich Town’s Conor Chaplin after an impressive goalscoring run.
