During recent weeks, the Blues faithful have endured one of the Club’s worst periods in the last 5 years; Garry Monk’s sacking has wiped out the fans’ end-of -season positivity, leaving them feeling at their lowest point since the Carson Yeung era.
In spite of recent events, both fans and players must keep their heads up. They must dig deep and find a way of looking forward rather than dwelling on the past. The Club’s transfer dealings in the up-coming weeks will most likely define next season, and it is vitally important that fans get behind the team – the current negativity cannot be allowed to continue.
So which players have made Blues news this week?
Che Adams (Departure)
Che Adams had the season of his life in 2018/19, bagging 22 goals and assisting 4, the talisman was bound to be under the Premier-League spotlight.
After interest from several Premier League clubs in January, it was a given that Che was going to go this summer, and so he did. Southampton payed a reported 16 million pound fee for the striker who will surely be a huge miss for Blues.
But will we be able to replace him?
Michael Morrison (Departure)
Michael Morrison joined Blues from Charlton Athletic on an emergency loan in October 2014. During his loan period at the Club, Morrison showed the true qualities of a centre back, exactly what Gary Rowett was looking for.
Michael established himself as a first-team player, and his deal was made permanent in January 2015.
This season, the skipper was one of the mainstay first-team players and made 44 appearances for the club.
However, the club were unable to agree a new deal with Morrison, and he is now a free agent.
One who will be truly missed.
Jefferson Montero (Rumored /Incoming)
After working under Caretaker Head Coach Pep Clotet at Swansea, this signing would be a great one for Blues.
The Ecuadorean is a skillful winger, something Blues are lacking, and would surely offer something to trouble the opposition. However, it is highly rumored that he would encounter work-permit issues.
Despite this, he is a very good player and would add depth to our squad.
Would you take the Ecuadorean?
George Puscas (Rumored /Incoming)
As Che Adams departs for Southampton, it is rumored that 23 year old, George Puscas, is wanted at St. Andrews.
Puscas played extremely well at the U21 European Championships and caught the eye of multiple European clubs, one of them being Blues.
However, George has also been linked with Sheffield United.
If he was to come to Blues, would he be the man to replace Che?
Pablo Mari (rumored /incoming)
As skipper Michael Morrison leaves Blues, Blues have been rumored to be in negotiations with Manchester City’s Pablo Mari.
With Blues looking to implement a new style of play next season, Mari could be the man to help Blues play out from the back.
Blues face competition from Levante for the centre back.
If this deal goes through, he would be a great addition to the side.
This completes the main transfer news now, let’s hope there’s more to come in the coming weeks.
