Ipswich Town are currently part of the chasing pack in League One which are seeking to secure a play-off place ahead of attempting to make an instant return to the Championship at the first time of asking since being relegated last term.
Much of the Portman Road side’s best moments this term have come via the club’s first choice strikers James Norwood and Kayden Jackson, with both frontmen having netted 11 goals in all competitions respectively.
In addition to this the likes of Luke Garbutt and Luke Chambers have added both experience and quality to the side in what has been a testing season at times for the Tractor Boys.
QUIZ: Are these 15 ex-Ipswich Town players still playing? Yes or no? See if you can get full marks down below!
Given that they are in the race for promotion to the second division, it is widely expected that Paul Lambert will look to trim his squad this summer if they achieve their objective this term.
Here, we take a look at TWO players that Ipswich Town should ideally look to sell if they get promoted this season….
The former West Ham United forward has largely found himself out of favour under Lambert this term and could well be one of the main casualties of the club’s expected end of season cull.
A versatile attacking player, Sears has largely been utilised as an out and out striker and in attacking midfield on the odd occasion by his manager in an attempt for the 30-year-old to find some form.
Ultimately Sears is way behind in the pecking order at Portman Road due to the presence of Norwood and Jackson and could well depart this summer in search of more regular game time.
With the player likely to be on a sizeable contract for a club of Ipswich’s size, it would hardly be surprising to see him make for the exit at the end of the current campaign.
Another striker who has really struggled for the East Anglian outfit that has failed to convince this term is former Manchester United striker Will Keane.
The 27-year-old has largely failed to succeed in being an adequate deputy to Norwood and Jackson and could well be shipped out by Lambert during the summer as he seeks to add another goalscoerer to his squad.
The player only arrived at Portman Road this summer from Hull City but has so far failed to convince for the League One club, finding the net on just three occasions in a series of disappointing showings.
With Norwood and Jackson having experienced various inconsistencies on the odd occasion this term, Lambert will surely be prioritising the addition of an experienced Championship level striker this summer if they gain promotion.
