Having already secured the services of 11 new players this summer, Coventry City boss Mark Robins could be about to swoop once again.
According to The News, the Sky Blues are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool midfielder Herbie Kane on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old, who is also thought to be a target for Coventry’s League One rivals Portsmouth, failed to secure a move to the Championship last week and is now considering his options in the lower divisions.
Having spent the entirety of the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Doncaster Rovers, Kane is no stranger to the third tier and thus will be confident in his abilities to produce the goods on a consistent basis at this particular level of football.
Whereas the midfielder was unable to inspire Rovers to play-off glory during the previous term, he was nevertheless very impressive for the Yorkshire-based outfit having ended the year with 11 goal contributions to his name.
With the transfer window scheduled to close on September 2nd, Coventry will have to step up their approach if they are indeed looking to bring Kane in.
This would unquestionably be an incredibly shrewd move by the Sky Blues considering Kane’s previous exploits in League One.
Having seen Tom Bayliss leave the club earlier this summer to join Championship side Preston North End, Coventry are very much in the market for a new midfielder and so pursuing the Liverpool youngster makes perfect sense.
Blessed with a wide array of skills, Kane could bring some much-needed creativity to the Sky Blues who failed to breakdown a resolute Bolton Wanderers side on Saturday despite dominating vast sways of possession.
In order to have the best chance of bettering the eighth place finish that they achieved last season in 2020, it is paramount that Coventry continue to bolster their side and thus by bringing in Kane they will be adding further competition for midfield places.
