5 Hull City Players Attracting Transfer Interest
Hull City fans have scarcely forgotten the wounds of the summer transfer window thanks to the fact that over the 3 months the transfer window was open the Hull City Tigers lost 8 first-team regulars. As such, the club was forced to dip into the market on nothing short of 11 occasions to bring new players in. However, fans will need to steel themselves once again as the January transfer window is a mere 6 weeks away, and these 5 Hull City players are already attracting interest.
David Marshall only joined Hull City last season, but he certainly didn’t join to ride the bench and a player of his standard will no doubt be angered to find himself out of the picture at the KCOM Stadium. Even though he was favoured by Mike Phelan following his arrival from Cardiff City, Marco Silva first instated Eldin Jakupovic as the club’s number 1, and since then Marshall has played just twice in losses to Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. The 32-year old may be willing to leave but any potential suitors will first have to exceed his considerable wages.
Winger Kamil Grosicki has made no secret of the fact that he would be willing to move away from Hull City in the summer following the club’s relegation from the Premier League. However, despite all the talk of apparent interest, no approach was made for the Polish international player and he was forced to remain at the Tigers. Now, with the transfer window opening again, Grosicki is hoping that a deal can be brokered to take him back into the high rankings.
Bowen is without a doubt Hull City’s star of the season so far as his form has brightened an otherwise uneventful campaign for the Tigers – which the best betting sites have taken notice of. In his breakthrough season, the forward has scored 8 goals and started every game under Leonid Slutsky to earn himself the EFL Young Players of the Month award for August, as well as a new contract. However, the contract won’t count for much if a Premier League team makes a move for the 20-year old, and he has already been tipped for a call-up to the England under-21 squad.
A transfer window is yet to pass without Hernandez’s name being associated with a host of clubs hoping to snatch him up, and January is set to be no different. While the Uruguayan striker is currently recovering from an Achilles tendon injury which is set to rule him out for at least another 4 months, Hernandez will be out of contract at the end of the season which frees him up to start talking to clubs comes January 1st. Slutsky will no doubt be keen to negotiate a new deal before the widow opens, but Hernandez will continue to attract interest until that happens.
The 27-year old Norwegian player must surely be tired of Hull City by now. Since Diomande joined the Tigers in 2015, he has been nothing more than a bit-part player, failing to hold down 1st team place, and scoring only 6 goals in over 40 appearances. Unfortunately his time at the KCOM Stadium has yielded just 16 starts and given the current climate, he is unlikely to get another before the January transfer window. Diomande lost his place in the Norwegian squad owing to a lack of 1st team action, and he therefore may be eager to leave the club in search of regular 1st team football.
