Gayle would score goals in the Championship for sure. However, I would personally go for Karlan Grant at Huddersfield, especially if they drop to League one. Then Ivan Toney from Peterborough at his back up. Two players that would be more than capable in the Championship and wouldn’t break the bank. Would then look to offload or loan out Wesley, Davis. Keeping possibly Samatta.
Talking of Huddersfield dropping, Terence Kongolo is an option at the back, especially if Mings moves on. Connor Goldson at Rangers wants to move closer to home, as I know his father. Midlands boy and would do a job in the Championship. WBA looking at him. Matty Cash at Forest is another improving every game at full back.
Out wide, Lolley would be great on the left side and would run through brick walls for this club. Only issue here is he wouldn’t be cheap. In the middle, Massengo at Bristol City is one to keep a watchful eye on, as sadly we’ve missed the boat with Eze at QPR. Swift at Reading another useful player and appears bids already being made for him. Price on Swift seems to be good though, as tall of 4/5m being enough. Hourihane will probably hit double figures in the Championship and needs to be retained. Can we keep McGinn? Hope so but doubtful I suppose.
The inevitable Grealish sale would be a huge void to fill and lack of creativity would be difficult to replace. Can’t we’ll would be great, but his price high. However, Bradley Dack is an option perhaps with Blackburn going nowhere.
We also need to keep an eye on top youngsters coming through clubs and poach them early. Brewster as you say on loan. Derby have a few already with Bogle and Sibley doing well. Nathan Collins at Stoke. Imagine of they drop to League One. Fry and Tavernier at Middlesbrough.
