Coventry City are facing a crucial period over the next few weeks as they aim to make the right additions to their squad to help get them ready for next season.
It has been a frustratingly quiet window for the Sky Blues so far in terms of incomings, with them having already missed out on the likes of Matty James and James Collins.
The Sky Blues have also allowed the likes of Marko Marosi, Amadou Bakayoko and Maxime Biamou to leave the club, while Leo Ostigard and Viktor Gyökeres have returned to Brighton following the end of their loan spells with the club.
At the moment, Coventry are looking light in terms of numbers in a couple of key positions and thet will need to address that as soon as possible. They now know the fixtures that await them at the start of next term and they will be hoping to start adding players in the near future.
Here then, we take a look at some of the latest transfer news concerning Coventry…
Sky Blues not moving for Wolves’ Matija Šarkić
One position that the Sky Blues have to prioritse this summer is in the goalkeeping department with them having allowed Marosi to leave the club and make the move to Shrewsbury Town. They have been linked with a potential move for Wolves goalkeeper Matija Šarkić.
Šarkić spent time last season out on loan with Shrewsbury Town in League One and he delivered some encouraging performances and managed to record nine clean sheets in his 26 league matches. The 23-year-old was also able to average 2.3 saves per game for Shrewsbury.
However, according to the latest report from Coventry Live, the Sky Blues are now not thought to be interested in Šarkić this summer.
It is believed that despite Robins being keen to add to his goalkeeping options, the Wolves keeper is not on their current list of transfer targets in that position.

Robins’ transfer plans outlined as permanent deals a priority
The latest report from Coventry Live reveals that the Sky Blues are wanting to prioritise permanent signings this summer over loan deals.
However, the report adds that Robins’ side could still look to utilise the loan market to their advantage as they have done recently with short-term acquisitions.
A new goalkeeper is one of their main targets, while it is also thought that the Sky Blues are going to be looking to bring in a couple of new left-full-backs following Sam McCallum’s return to parent club Norwich City.
Coventry are also still believed to be in the market for a new midfielder this summer, with them having missed out on a move for James. While they are also on the hunt for an attacking midfielder to provide competition for Callum O’Hare and Jamie Paterson has been linked.
New centre forwards are also thought to be on the agenda for the Sky Blues, with two new arrivals in that position being targeted as Robins aims to get competition in for both Tyler Walker and Matt Godden.
