Birmingham City dealt blow in Jordan Graham pursuit

Birmingham City have been dealt a blow in their bid to bring Jordan Graham to St Andrew’s this summer.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a report by Football League World, who claimed that Lincoln City have submitted an offer for the former Gillingham winger, who recently left the Kent-based club following the expiry of his contract.

It is reported that both Birmingham and Charlton Athletic are interested in a move for the 26-year-old this summer, although Lincoln now appear to be leading the race for the former England under-17 international.

Bowyer will be gutted

Considering just how impressive Graham was for Gillingham last season, if the Blues are indeed to miss out on a deal for the winger to Lincoln, it will undoubtedly leave Lee Bowyer gutted.

Over his 39 League One appearances for Steve Evans’ side last term, the £225,000-rated man scored 12 goals, registered six assists and created 14 big chances for his teammates, as well as taking an average of one shot and making 1.9 key passes per game.

These returns saw the one-time Wolves forward earn a seasonal SofaScore match rating of 7.20, ranking him as the Gills’ second-best performer in their league campaign.

The 26-year-old also impressed in cup competitions, scoring one further goal and providing three more assists over his five appearances in the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and EFL Trophy, taking his total number of goals to 13 and his total number of assists to nine across all competitions last term.

As such, it would very much appear as if Graham would be a fantastic addition to Bowyer’s attacking arsenal ahead of next season, for which the 44-year-old will be looking to build a team capable of pushing on from their solid campaign this time around.

Who was the Championship top scorer during the 2004/05 season?

However, the Blues manager will have to act fast if he does indeed wish to land the winger this summer, as Lincoln appear to be closing in on a deal for the man who Evans dubbed a player with “frightening pace“.
