Peterborough United are interested in signing Cardiff City striker Max Watters and Rotherham United midfielder Matt Crooks, a report from The Peterborough Telegraph has revealed.
Posh have already signed goalkeeper David Cornell and winger Jorge Grant as they prepare for a return to the Championship this summer, after promotion from League One last season.
However, it seems they are not done yet, with this latest update claiming that Watters and Crooks are both targets for the London Road club.
However, Watters has since made just three appearances for Cardiff – two of those from the bench – and it is now claimed that the Bluebirds are keen to cut their losses on the 22-year-old, something which has seemingly caught the attention of Peterborough.
Crooks meanwhile, is another player who is said to be of interest to Peterborough, with the midfielder having scored six goals and provided three assists in 40 league appearances for Rotherham as they were relegated from the Championship last season.
Which eight of these 20 players never scored a goal for Peterborough?
The 27-year-old has just a year remaining on his contract with the Millers, and has already been linked with Derby and Ipswich this summer.
These are a couple of interesting links for Peterborough in my opinion.
Despite Rotherham’s relegation, Crooks was outstanding for the Millers last season, and could be a useful addition for Posh as they prepare for their return to the Championship.
By contrast, Watters could be something of a risk for Peterborough, given they will no doubt need goals to stay in the second-tier, and we have yet to see whether Watters will be capable of finding the net at this level.
Even so, it does seem as though Peterborough are moving quickly to put together a competitive squad for next season, and that ought to be encouraging for the club’s supporters.
