Reports from Rovers Guard claim that Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing League Two top goalscorer James Norwood.
The 28-year old has been on fire for Tranmere Rovers this term, scoring 15 goals in 21 league games for the Wirral outfit, who sit 7th in the Sky Bet League Two table.
Having scored 77 goals in 150 games for Tranmere, it was only a matter of time before Norwood alerted interest from higher profile clubs, and here, we discuss whether he’d be a good signing for Sheffield Wednesday…
There’s no doubting Norwood’s ability in the lower leagues, but surely, there are better options out there for Wednesday?
The Owls are getting closer and closer to the relegation zone in the Championship, and are in need of a lift to steer them away from the lower echelons of the table.
At 28 years of age, he’s hardly one for the future, and there are much better players out there.
No, this’d be a terrible signing.
Norwood has never played at a decent level, nor do I think he is capable of doing so.
He’s a good lower league star, but he’s got some attributes that do not fit with being at a big club.
There’s better in the lower leagues, younger and without discipline issues.
I’m not sure Norwood is what Wednesday need in the New Year.
There needs to be a focus on building from the back at Hillsborough, as two clean sheets this season simply isn’t good enough.
Get things right defensively, then focus on your attacking options.
