This could mark a fine opportunity to take advantage of the Sky Blues’ notoriously poor finances, and although they would love to keep him are resigned to the fact that should an acceptable bid arrive this January he could leave.
With the continued injury problems suffered by Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Frank Lampard can no longer rely on the Englishman to play and score the bulk of his side’s goals.
With summer signing Neal Maupay also failing to deputise for the 25-year-old, boasting just one goal this season, something must be done this January.
Their touted man, Gyokeres already has nine goals for his struggling side in the Championship, adding to an already expansive career given his age.
Standing at 6 foot 2 he has the physical presence to compete in the Premier League, plus his time playing against battle-hardened defenders in his current division will surely have acclimatised him to English football.
His manager Mark Robins has been keen to praise his star man, whilst also admitting they are at the “mercy of predators” when it comes to keeping ahold of him.
The 52-year-old said, on Gyokeres: “He has some unbelievable ability – power, technique. He has got everything in his locker and that desire and hunger to score goals, and he’s also got a really angry side as well…”.
As aforementioned, this range of abilities would surely see him succeed up front for Lampard.
They are in desperate need of a focal point with which they can build their play from, and this red-hot striker could be the perfect man to help fans forget about Calvert-Lewin.
