Steve Bruce is reportedly a fan of Southampton striker Sam Gallagher and the Birmingham Mail are reporting that we could make a move for the former Birmingham loanee.
The forward has been touted as a top talent from a young age, but he has struggled to fulfil that potential. He is currently with the Saints on their pre-season tour in China, trying to impress new manager Mark Hughes, but another loan spell away from St Mary’s is possible.
There’s no doubt that we can do with strengthening our frontline, but the 22-year-old’s record in front of goal in the Championship isn’t great. An average of one goal in every five games doesn’t show a prolific forward.
Gallagher is a decent target man, and can also play out wide, but the majority fans I polled don’t think a move would be a good idea:
Of course, we can’t be too choosy considering the financial problems at the club but, at the same time, we have to find players that would improve on what we have already got. What do you think? Let me know in the comments:
