EFL trio among clubs eyeing deal for Ipswich Town man



Clubs in League One and League Two are interested in signing attacker Armando Dobra on loan from Ipswich Town, a report from The East Anglian Daily Times has claimed.

A graduate of Ipswich’s academy, Dobra has made 30 first-team appearances in all competitions for the club, including three during the current campaign, and has scored twice for the Tractor Boys.

Now however, it seems as though the 20-year-old could be set for a temporary move away from Portman Road in the final week of the summer transfer window.

According to this latest update, Ipswich still see Dobra as part of their long-term plans for the club, despite the overhaul of their squad this summer.

However, with manager Paul Cook possessing a number of attacking options this season, it is thought Ipswich are willing to let Dobra leave the club on loan for the rest of the season.

Ipswich’s League One rivals AFC Wimbledon, as well as League Two duo Salford City and Leyton Orient, are all said to be interested in a move for the Albania Under 21 international.

Have Ipswich won or lost more games against each of these 25 teams?

There is also interest from elsewhere, and it has been suggested that Dobra is keen to play at as high a level as possible, with a short-term loan until January also claimed to be under consideration.

So far this summer, Ipswich have allowed 21 players to leave the club, with a further 16 coming into the club.

The Verdict

This does look as though it could be a smart move for Ipswich and Dobra to make if a loan deal does happen.

The 20-year-old is obviously a promising young player who could have a big part to play for Ipswich going forward, following some exciting cameos in his career so far.

However, the options currently available to Cook upfront mean it could be difficult for Dobra to get regular game time at Portman Road this season.

With that in mind, a temporary move away to continue his improvement and development could make sense, and it is no surprise to see that there is indeed interest in the attacker this summer.
