It might not be the obvious solution to our problems, but he would certainly help up in one area.
And it’s an area that we desperately need help in.
According to a report in SportsWorldGhana, Blues are interested in bringing in Nottingham Forest winger Albert Adomah, with a fee of £1m being discussed.
Adomah played under Karanka when the two were at Middlesbrough and seemed to get quite a lot of use out of him, as he scored 19 goals and contributed 17 assists in the course of just over three seasons. The 32-year-old only signed for the East Midlands side last summer, and was a key player in the early part of the season for them before seeing his playing time decrease and eventually be shipped off to Cardiff City on loan.
Now whilst it might not seem like the most attractive of deals, it is something that we might make out of ‘necessity’ rather than ‘want’.
How much will Blues spend in this window?
More than £15m
£15m or less
Whilst I have spoken about the club using the youth system, and the desire to carry on from last season, even I know that there is a limit, and I’m aware that the club desperately needs strength in depth. The substitutes bench from our game against West Brom is arguably the biggest indicator of that, with the squad numbers being a dead giveaway.
With the likes of Dan Crowley and Jeremie Bela taking up the starting roles out wide, Adomah could offer us some great experience in a backup/rotation role within the team whilst we still sprinkle in a few of the academy players in there as well.
What about you? Do you think that Adomah could offer us something next season? Or do you think we could or should look elsewhere?
