Sunderland eyeing up deal for Bournemouth’s Jamal Lowe

An update has emerged on Sunderland and their interest in Jamal Lowe in the summer transfer window…

What’s the talk?

According to Football League World, the Black Cats are one of a number of Championship clubs keen on a deal to sign him on loan this season.

The report claims that Watford, Norwich, and Burnley – who were all relegated from the Premier League this year – are also eyeing him up, with the Hornets leading the race.

It is stated that Bournemouth are willing to sanction a loan departure for the 2022/23 campaign following their promotion to the top flight.

Imagine him & Jack Clarke

The Black Cats must now fight to win the race to sign the Jamaican attacker as he is a proven Championship performer who could form an exciting duo with Jack Clarke on the wings.

Should Sunderland sign Lowe?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Clarke has enjoyed a sublime start to the season after joining on a permanent deal following his loan spell from Tottenham last term.

He has averaged a SofaScore rating of 7.08 across the five games – ranking fourth in the team – and has chipped in with one goal and one assist whilst playing at left wing-back.

The youngster has created a whopping 2.6 chances per game – the most in the squad – and this shows that he has the quality to consistently create opportunities for his teammates to score.

He regularly provides key passes and has only been rewarded with one assist from the 13 openings he has made, which suggests that adding another goalscorer to the side would benefit the Englishman.

Starting off easy... who was Sunderland's top scorer in 2021/22?

Lowe, meanwhile, has proven that he can score goals whilst playing in a variety of positions across the frontline, including out wide on the right.

The £13k-per-week forward, whose movement was dubbed “top class” by journalist Josh Bunting, scored seven goals and assisted two in 12 Championship starts in 2021/22 as he helped Bournemouth to secure their promotion.

This came after he found the back of the net 14 times in the division in the 2020/21 campaign for Swansea, which shows that he knows how to score goals at this level.

Therefore, he could be the player to come in and finish the chances that Clarke is creating as he is a goalscoring winger who is proven in the second tier and should be in the prime years of his career at the age of 28.

This is why Kristjaan Speakman must now work hard to beat the likes of Norwich, Watford, and Burnley to the attacker’s signature as he has the potential to be a sublime signing for the Black Cats.
