Birmingham City are interested in signing Jordan Graham this summer, according to recent reports…
That’s the word according to Football League World, who report that Lee Bowyer has identified the Gillingham winger as a player who he believes could improve his squad at St. Andrew’s.
It is also reported that Bowyer attempted to sign the 26-year-old during his time in charge of Charlton Athletic and that the 44-year-old’s interest in Graham has not subsided since being appointed as the Blues manager back in March – with Football League World going as far to claim that the manager is a “big fan” of the former England U17 international.
It is not difficult to see why Bowyer is so fond of the winger, as, so far this season, Graham has been in remarkable form over his 37 League One appearances for Steve Evans’ side, with the 26-year-old scoring 11 goals and registering six assists, as well as creating 13 big chances and making an average of 1.9 key passes per game.
These returns have helped the £225,000-rated man average a highly impressive SofaScore match rating of 7.21 – ranking him as Gillingham’s second-best performer in the third tier, helping his side to sit comfortably in the top half of the table.
As such, the addition of the winger Steve Evans once described as “frightening” could add some much-needed firepower to Bowyer’s attacking arsenal at Birmingham, with the winger outscoring both Scott Hogan and Lukas Jutkiewicz in terms of league goals this season, with the Blues duo having seven strikes each to their name.
Furthermore, with Jordan being available on a free transfer this summer, his signing would represent something of a risk-free move for Bowyer’s side, as well as one with the potential to help take Birmingham’s game to the next level in their Championship campaign next summer – something that has been required at St Andrew’s for a number of years now.
