The dilemmas facing Nathan Jones this summer transfer window at Luton Town

Published

on

Luton Town will be striving to improve upon their position in the Championship standings once more when the 2022/23 campaign gets underway. 

Finishing last season in sixth, the ambitious nature of the club means that they will be setting their sights within the top six. 

The Hatters have already seen Kal Naismith depart, with the experienced defender joining Bristol City on a three-year contract, with Elliot Lee also leaving the club following his release. 

Here, we take a look at three dilemmas facing Jones this summer transfer window at Luton…

A Kal Naismith replacement?

It will be interesting to see if the Hatters dip back into the market for a Naismith replacement, as they already have strong options in his absence. 

However, Naismith’s ability to thrive as a ball carrier, coupled with his versatility, means that it would be difficult to replace him within the budget. 

Gabe Osho impressed when given the chance last season and emerge as a more integral part of the first team next season. 

Reece Burke, Tom Lockyer and Sonny Bradley are three excellent options for Jones to continue to rely on, whilst Peter Kioso and Dan Potts have also been called upon in a back three.

The future of Robert Snodgrass 

Robert Snodgrass enjoyed half a season with the Hatters last year, with Luton hoping that the experienced midfielder signs a fresh contract for the upcoming campaign. 

Providing creativity in abundance and intelligence into an attacking midfield position, re-signing the 34-year-old would be a big boost after losing a player as important as Naismith. 

Should Snodgrass depart, it will be interesting to see if the Hatters target the attacking midfield position, because although they have two strong options in Luke Berry and Jordan Clark, the pair missed a sizeable chunk of the last campaign. 

Elijah Adebayo 

Scoring 16 goals in 40 Championship appearances, in what was his first full season at second-tier level, Elijah Adebayo caused chaos for opposing defences. 

Not just impressing with his knack for scoring goals, but his physicality and link-up play made it difficult for the opposition to contain him. 

Attracting transfer interest ahead of the summer, it remains to be seen if further interest will surface during the summer. 

Luton would be reluctant to sell to a divisional rival and will likely command a hefty fee for the forward’s services.
