Ipswich Town are interested in making a move to sign Birmingham City striker Sam Cosgrove this summer with the Blues prepared to allow him to leave on loan, according to The Sun on Sunday (20/06/21, p65).
Cosgrove only arrived at St Andrews from Aberdeen in a deal worth around £2 million in the January transfer window. However, the 24-year-old only managed to make two starts in the Championship and 12 appearances in total for Birmingham all without scoring a single goal.
The latest report from The Sun on Sunday (20/06/21, p65) now suggests that Lee Bowyer has decided that the forward will not be in his plans for next season. He will therefore be allowed to exit St Andrews on a loan deal to try and get some regular game time under his belt next season.

The report adds that Cosgrove’s situation has alerted Ipswich who are interested in making a move to sign the 24-year-old this summer as they aim to add to their firepower under Paul Cook.
It is believed that the Tractor Boys are going to wait and see if there is potential rival interest in Cosgrove from Championship clubs before coming in with an offer to take him on loan to Portman Road this summer.
This would be an excellent signing for Ipswich to make this summer you would feel with the forward a player that should be a real handful for defences in League One if he arrives at Portman Road. The 24-year-old has previously shown what he is about at Aberdeen and he offers a powerful presence in the penalty area with ability to chip in with important goals as well.
Cosgrove’s move to Birmingham has not worked out for him really, and his situation was not helped by the manager who signed him losing his job and being replaced by Bowyer. That saw him fail to make an impression on his new manager and it seems like a move to another side is exactly what he needs to get his career back on track.
You could see him thriving in Cook’s side next season if he handed an important role in the team. Cosgrove would just need to get a goal or two early on and then he should see his confidence levels return and then prove to be a real asset in League One.
