Sheffield Wednesday kick off the Championship weekend tonight as they host Wolves at Hillsborough in what should be an intriguing contest.
The men from Hillsborough have not had a great campaign so far this season and will need to try and find some spark against a talented Wolves side.
In January, though, they’re going to have to add to their creative options you feel and so, with that in mind, we’ve taken a look at whether Erhun Oztumer is part of the answer…

He’s exactly the type of player Carvalhal needs at Hillsborough.
Wednesday have become boring and predictable, and someone with Oztumer’s class would improve things.
Oztumer has been phenomenal in League One, and should be arrive at Sheffield Wednesday in January, it will delight the Hillsborough faithful.
No, he’s not a definite upgrade for the Owls.
Oztumer has talent and I do think he could play in the Championship, but Wednesday need to bring in proven quality.
Plus, Fernando Forestieri is coming back in January and he will bring a lot more to this team and I don’t see Oztumer getting in the Owls side when the Argentinian is available.
Without a doubt.
The playmaker picked up where he left off last season with League One Walsall, and has continued to score goals for fun from midfield for the Saddlers.
I’m surprised nobody took a punt on him in the summer, but the player’s big move could come next month. He would add class and goals to the Wednesday midfield.
