Blues have been rumoured to join Nottingham Forest and Blackburn in the race to sign Sunderland winger Will Buckley.
Blues are now looking for a suitable replacement for Demarai Gray after he signed for Leicester City yesterday afternoon, and Buckley has been heavily linked with Blues this week on social media.
According to a report in The Sun, Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has put five players up for sale as he looks to raise some added funds in order to strengthen his squad this month. One of those is Buckley and a number of Championship clubs are now looking for his signature, after being told he can leave the Stadium of Light.
Buckley hasn’t managed to cut it after former boss Gus Poyet brought him from Brighton upon his appointment, and has fallen down the pecking order. He does however possess quality and represents a good asset for the Championship.
The 26-year-old has recently been on loan at Leeds United – making only four appearances. A loan deal would be available for his services.
What do you think, would Blues be able to sign him?
