Ipswich are reportedly eyeing a deal to bring Brentford midfielder Alan Judge to Portman Road to help aid their bid to retain their Championship status.
According to reputable journalist, Alan Nixon, the Tractor Boys are lining up a swoop for the out-of-favour midfielder this month to add depth in their attacking areas.
Judge has been limited to just three league starts this season for Brentford, who have struggled for positive results since Dean Smith departed.
The Irishman is unlucky not to have been a regular in the Brentford side, after making his long-awaited recovery from a long-term leg injury.
The 30-year-old suffered a double leg break against Ipswich in April 2016, and struggled to break back into the Brentford side when he returned to action last season.
So, would Judge be a good signing for Ipswich?
“Judge would be a great signing for Ipswich.
“He’s exactly what they need, knows the league and has performed to a good standard in it before.
“He’d also bring a certain panache to their offering in the centre of the park.
“This would be superb business.”
“This would be a sensational signing.
“Ipswich need all the help they can get, and this is certainly a step in the right direction.
“This is a very shrewd signing and one that Paul Lambert should pursue as a matter of urgency.
“Ipswich are almost down and but Judge’s arrival could spark them into life.”
“This would be an excellent addition to the Ipswich squad.
“Judge has the creativity to make a real difference for the Tractor Boys as they battle to avoid relegation to League One this season.
“He hasn’t been getting a look in since he returned from injury, and a transfer to Ipswich would certainly be the best move for all parties.”
