Barnsley’s star striker Sam Winnall departed to join Sheffield Wednesday earlier this week and now the Tykes will have to look at possible replacements.
The prolific striker helped himself to plenty of goals at League One and Championship level for Barnsley so his exit has left a real void up front.
Barnsley will have Tom Bradshaw and Adam Armstrong to play up top, as well as Marley Watkins’ goals from midfield, but they might need to add another striker option if they are to have a successful season.
The January window is now in full swing and the Tykes will undoubtedly have been assessing the market and looking at potential incoming forwards.
It’s not always easy to secure a cheap deal in January so they will have to be shrewd if they can find an affordable replacement for Winnall.
Here are 2 strikers they need to consider to fill Winnall’s boots.
