As Wolves search for a striker on loan to provide competition and cover, Luke Regan makes two suggestions for the much needed position.
With the transfer window having slammed shut once again, and many a Wolves fan having deemed said window’s dealings to be unsatisfactory.
It is that time of year where we wait to see what the loan window may bring.
Now we all know that this can be a productive part of the season with Kenny using past October-December emergency loan windows to bring in future permanent editions.
Such as the man with the worlds best hair, James Henry and the ever so effective but now recently departed Michael Jacobs amongst others.
There are however exceptions to the rule and the arrival of Yannick Sagbo last shows that all that glitters In old gold, isn’t always that good.
Although to say Yannick Sagbo glittered may be pushing It slightly.
There has been much talk about loan additions with amongst the media with our supposed pursuit of Man United wonderkid James Wilson which Kenny has now ruled us out of.
With this in mind I will not be suggesting Wilson as one of the players Wolves may look to bring in, but I wouldn’t be disappointed if KJ was pulling the old double bluff.
This piece will look at two other striking options Wolves have been linked with, Firstly:
The pacey frontman offers a variety of options with versatility that allows him to play anywhere across the “front three”.
Strong in the air, as well as with the ball at his feet, Blackman’s has been on form recently providing two assists as well as goal in Reading’s 5-1 mauling of Ipswich.
Reading may reluctant to let Blackman go so a loan deal would need to be attractive for Wolves to entice him.
The Palace front man has slipped down the pecking order at Crystal Palace, which features the likes of Bamford, Wickham and Gayle amongst others.
This has left the former United trainee struggling for game time with the Eagles.
Campbell fits the mould of a current Wolves striker.
Quick, good in the channels and a solid finisher. Campbell has not featured as the prominent striker since his move to Palace from Cardiff.
However he has averaged fivr goals a season over the last two years in the BPL, considering the teams he was playing for and that he wasn’t starting every week isn’t horrific.
I’d like to see this one come off, however I wonder if Campbell would want a guaranteed start every week.
While I think he may be in line for that should he come in, there’s no guarantee he’d be a permanent signing.
Something I think Wolves might look for, given that we already have one striker on loan in the form of ALF.
What do you think of my suggestions? Anyone else I should have mentioned? Post your thoughts below and join the debate.
