A striker is what most Cardiff fans were wanting before the most recent transfer window started, and indeed Wednesday’s Deadline Day.
Paul Trollope has brought in Frederic Gounongbe and Kenneth Zohore already this summer, but preferred to use midfielders playing out of position in their most recent Championship game, so perhaps it wasn’t surprising to see someone come into the Welsh capital on Wednesday.
Rickie Lambert joined from West Bromwich Albion with just seconds to go until the 11pm deadline, but is that enough?
If Lambert was to get an injury, or lose form, where do Cardiff go? FIFA scrapped the emergency loan window for this season, so Trollope must now wait until January to sign players from other clubs, but free agents are available to sign all year around.
The Bluebirds haven’t started the way that a team chasing promotion should, with just the one win over struggling Blackburn before the international break.
They need to start winning games and getting points on the board if they want to go one step further than last year, where they finished in 8th place.
Here, in the opinion of FLW’s Ryan Evans, are THREE free agents that Cardiff must look to bring in ASAP…..
