Coventry City looking at Wilson replacements

Wilson is now playing for Bournemouth

After selling Callum Wilson to Bournemouth on Friday evening, Coventry manager Steven Pressley has already begun the process of targeting replacements for their ex-star striker.

Having already brought in five new players last week, it could be another busy week for the Sky Blues in the transfer market

Whilst keeper Ryan Allsop and winger Mohamed Coulibaly were added to the squad as part of the Callum Wilson deal, striker Josh McQuoid could be the third Cherries player to become a Sky
Blue. The club’s official website has stated that ‘discussions [are] ongoing for a third arrival from the Cherries’. According to Coventry Telegraph journalist Andy Turner, McQuoid is the mystery third player that the club are talking to.

Pressley is also reported to be looking in to bringing in either Sam Winnall of Scunthorpe or Scott Hogan from Rochdale. Winnall, ex-Wolves, top scored in League Two with the Iron, notching 23 goals in the division. Hogan who rejoined Rochdale last summer enjoyed a breakthrough season at Spotland with 17 goals in just 32 league appearances. Either of the duo is likely to come at a premium but with £1million reportedly available to Pressley for new recruits, the Sky Blues can afford a transfer fee.

Finally, Tom Eaves continues to be heavily linked with Coventry City. The 6ft5 target-man struggled last season during loan spells with Rotherham and Shrewsbury. However Pressley views the Bolton striker as a player with great potential available at a knock-down price.
