Bristol City’s striker hunt takes another twist as update emerges

Published

on

Further details have emerged regarding Bristol City’s plans for the January transfer window, and specifically regarding a deal for Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah.

Lee Johnson was keen to bring the teenager to Ashton Gate during the summer but was beaten to the punch by Leeds United, but with Nketiah returning to Arsenal rumours of a move to the west of England have once again emerged.

However, according to a recent report from The Independent, the Bristol City board are currently looking at other targets as they grow concerned over the likelihood of Nketiah joining them.

Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster is another forward they are reportedly monitoring with the report also stating the youngster’s move to Swansea could be on the verge of collapse over a dispute regarding clauses in the player’s contract.

Quiz – Can you remember Bristol City’s last 15 league positions?

1 of 15

1. Where did Bristol City finish in the Championship during 18-19?

During his spell at Elland Road, Nketiah managed to notch three goals in 16 Championship appearances, but only started one of those games.

The Robins have slipped out of promotion contention in recent weeks with five losses in their six league games seeing them plummet down into mid table from relative comfort in the play-offs.

The verdict

Missing out on Nketiah twice would be seriously careless from a Bristol City perspective.

The striker has shown he can cut it at this level and with the Robins seriously short on the striking front, it seemed a no brainer to have a deal in place for him to come to Ashton Gate, should things break down at Leeds.

It all points to a real lack of orginisation really. The club can still be promoted this season but they have to get their act together in January.
