‘This is risky’ – Birmingham City set to secure agreement with attacker: Opinion



Birmingham City are reportedly set to sign Swedish winger Kerim Mrabti on a free transfer, according to HITC.

The 24-year old has been without a club since November after being released by Djurgardens IF – the winger scored 18 goals and produced 14 assists in 77 games for the Swedish club, and was linked with a move to Newcastle United in the summer.

Garry Monk’s men are restricted to making just one signing this month, due to breaching Financial Fair Play regulations in the summer which ultimately led to the club being placed under a transfer embargo.

Here, we discuss whether Mrabti would be a good signing for Birmingham…

George Harbey

“Mrabti looks to be a really exciting player on paper, who has contributed to many goals over in Sweden.

“You feel that the only area that Birmingham need to strengthen is their wide areas, so it’s good to see Monk bolstering his options.

“It must be quite worrying though for Birmingham fans though – with the club only allowed to sign one player this month, this move has to be spot on.”

Jacob Potter

“He’ll have to adjust to life in England quickly.

“Mrabti is unproven in English football, and is a risky signing if he can’t settle down in the Championship.

“He offers pace and trickery out wide, and this could be a shrewd bit of business by Monk if he can find his feet swiftly.”

Alfie Burns

“This is risky.

“Mrabti seems an exciting talent, but whoever Birmingham bring in this month is going to be a risk.

“If you can only do one deal, it’s always going to be a risk and this is the case here.

“There will be pressure on Mrabti to improve Birmingham’s options.”

Louie Chandler

“I am not at all convinced.

“Birmingham are only able to make one signing this summer and with Isaac Vassell returning I don’t think a striker is needed.

“They would be much better off strengthening out wide and in the creative areas.”
