Exciting times lie ahead for Birmingham City fans.
Having narrowly avoided the drop after a Che Adams goal on the final day of the season at Bristol City condemned Blackburn Rovers to relegation, Blues fans will look to Harry Redknapp’s first full season in charge with great anticipation.
A number of faces are expected to join ‘Arry’s revolution, with betting suspended on John Terry heading to the West Midlands this summer.
Redknapp will have a number of targets in mind, and will wheel and deal all the way to transfer deadline day when he is sure to announce his latest signing from the window of his Range Rover.
Another relegation scrap is unfathomable for those at Birmingham, and optimistic fans will harbour hopes that their club can challenge for the top six next season.
Adding free agent Marvin Emnes (rated at £850k on Transfermarkt) to the squad would go a long way in helping the club’s promotion aspirations, with the tricky winger promising to add pace and power to Birmingham’s attack next season.
Emnes has never been prolific, but has undoubted ability to cause problems to opposition defences, and Redknapp could be the man to get the best out of the Dutchman.
Emnes is versatile, with the ability to operate out wide or as a striker, and this adaptability will appeal to the former Spurs boss.
On a free transfer, Emnes presents little risk, and could become key to a Blues top six push.
If Emnes can find form in England’s second city, then he could be a deadly addition to Redknapp’s new look squad.
