Birmingham City remain keen on bringing Jordan Graham to St. Andrew’s this summer.
That’s according to a report by Birmingham Live, who claim that Lee Bowyer has retained his interest in the Gillingham winger and is considering a move for the 26-year-old in the summer transfer window, news that should delight the club’s loyal supporters.
It is reported that the 44-year-old attempted to sign Gramham during his time in charge of Charlton Athletic, and, following a highly impressive season in League One, it would appear as if Bowyer believes the £225k-rated man would make a fine addition to his attacking arsenal at Birmingham City this summer.
With Bowyer guiding the Blues to safety in the Championship last season, this summer is an opportunity for the manager to build a side capable of more than just surviving the drop in their upcoming campaign.
And, considering just how impressive Graham was for Gillingham last term, it is not difficult to see why the 44-year-old believes that the winger could help take his Birmingham side to another level next season.
Indeed, over his 39 League One appearances for Steve Evans side in 2020/21, the former England U17 international scored 12 goals, registered six assists and created a whopping 14 big chances for his teammates, as well as taking an average of one shot and making 1.9 key passes per game.
Graham also impressed in the cup competitions, scoring one further goal and providing three assists over six appearances in the FA Cup, the Carabao Cup and the EFL Trophy, taking his total haul for the season to 13 goals and nine assists.
As such, should Bowyer indeed go on to finally make his wish come true of landing the £2.1k-per-week forward this summer, whom Evans dubbed a “frightening” player, it would certainly appear to be a step in the right direction for the Blues, as well as being a transfer that would delight fans of the club.
