Sandro Kulenovic, Rumours And Huge Bids

Is Sandro Kulenovic on his approach to Oakwell? We talk about a number of the choices obtainable to Barnsley FC and the overall deadline day hearsay mill.

On Monday night The Reds introduced the departure of a lot beloved striker Kieffer Moore, as he shunned Oakwell to workforce up with the Latics and ‘Crusty the Pie’. The results of this departure was The Reds receiving a hefty £4M, and ‘Keef’ leaving a gap in The Reds’ squad, so with many followers anticipating that gap to be crammed in, I take a look at the rumours swirling round Grove Road on the week of the switch deadline.

First up, and together with his identify within the submit it’ll come as no shock to you that I will write about Croatian striker Sandro Kulenovic, at the moment taking part in for Legia Warsaw in Poland’s high division, the Etralaska. Likened to each Mario Mandzukic in physique and energy  and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang in how fast he’s.

Kulenovic has represented Croatia at each single youth stage, proper from U14’s as much as U21’s. Final season within the Etralaska, Kulenovic bagged 4 in 21 video games. Not excellent numbers, however nearly definitely to not be scoffed at, particularly when you think about that he began most video games on the bench and scored while on the pitch – as soon as in each 178 minutes. Going off of this common, if Kulenovic have been to have began all 37 video games within the Etralaska he would’ve in all probability bagged round 17 objectives, which is excellent for a participant who hasn’t even turned twenty but. This season thus far, he has scored in his sole look within the league for Legia, and an extra as soon as within the Europa League, beginning this season off with a bang you might nearly say. Out there for round €3M, The Reds have already bid €2.7M, which with bonuses might hit that magic determine, maintain your eyes peeled Reds followers. I believe this one could possibly be a go-er.

Subsequent, a participant who has been linked with The Reds for effectively over a month now, Marcus Tavernier. Having seen a gap bid of £1.7M rejected on July twenty first, and a second bid of £2.6M rejected in early August, might we see ‘Tav’ in a Crimson shirt earlier than Thursday’s 5PM deadline, with The Reds set to swoop in with a ultimate bid?

Regardless of being seen by ‘Boro followers as a poster-boy for Jonathan Woodgate’s new look aspect, The Reds fairly clearly assume a deal will be struck with the Teeside membership, as most definitely if not negotiations wouldn’t have been carried out thus far down the road from our first bid. Tavernier seems to be set to be a high participant sooner or later as effectively, already capped 19 occasions by England U19’s and England U20’s. He’s a high expertise and I might like to see him at Grove Road.

Merely to spherical off my factors on Tavernier. For Middlesborough, in whole he has 6 objectives and 4 assists in 35 appearances; most of which got here from the bench. We must also contemplate his age, Tavernier’s file is excellent.

Now in all probability the participant who has been linked heaviest to The Reds, Tom Pearce. With a bid within the area of £850K sufficient to tempt Leeds into promoting. It seems to be as if The Reds might get an actual coup within the type of Pearce.

Like most of the gamers on this submit, he’s capped for his nation at youth stage, having made 2 appearances for the England U21’s and eight for the England U20’s. Sarcastically Pearce’s first ever skilled profession objective was truly towards The Reds in a 2-1 victory for Leeds in April 2018. A third incoming from Leeds in a single summer time could also be on the playing cards right here, and I am all for it, Left-Again is doubtless our weakest space on the sector by way of depth, and that i really feel Pearce could be an excellent choice to have.

Lastly, a few rumours. Studies from Soccer Insider, the agency who first introduced us information of Mallik Wilks and Aapo Halme’s incomings have recommended {that a} ‘Mortgage to purchase’ transfer could also be about to happen for younger West Brom midfielder Sam Area. As soon as once more he has been capped by England at youth stage 22 occasions throughout three totally different age teams, and shows a little bit of Championship pedigree having performed 12 occasions for the Baggies final time period. Nonetheless, it stays to be seen whether or not curiosity in Area is definitely concrete.

One other one from the Oakwell Hearsay Mill is that the ‘back-up choice’ if a deal for Sandro Kulenovic fails to materialise is Hannover 96 ahead Hendrik Weydandt. Weydandt bagged 6 objectives within the Bundesliga final time period, averaging a objective each 287 minutes in Germany’s high flight. If a deal have been to be struck for Weydandt the touted charge is that he would value round €2.5M. So a hefty quantity, however nonetheless a good bit cheaper than Kulenovic. Nonetheless, very similar to a deal for Sam Area, it stays to be seen if curiosity is concrete and never only a falsification.

What do you assume? All suggestions is appreciated, if you wish to feed one thing again to me or merely need a chat about BFC yow will discover me on twitter, my deal with is @TomOTPE.
