Sunderland put hefty price tag on misfiring forward, good idea?
Man City, Arsenal and Chelsea favourites to sign Sunderland star The People reports today that Sunderland could let their top striker Kenwyne Jones leave the club, if the right amount of money comes on the table.
No fee is mentioned but Jones could be worth as much as £25 million. The fact that also his partner up front Djibril Cisse could be leaving in the summer are not at all good news for Sunderland manager Ricky Sbragia.
Sbragia could see this as a big step in the wrong direction, and he would be struggling to find such a great forward line. Sunderland with Cisse and Jones could be a key to a massive climb up to the top 10 clubs in the Premier League, without them they will be struggling in the wrong area of the league. (soccervoice)
It does seem that whilst the Black Cats don’t appear to want to lose Kenwyne Jones the valuations they are setting on the player are very inflated so it’s almost as if they want to scare of potential suitors. Sbragia has recently stated that neither Cisse or Jones has been in top form of late and that fuelled speculation that Spurs may make another move for the former Southampton man in the summer. As for Arsenal, well i do not believe that Wenger would make such a move. He already has better strikers at the club and is unlikely to fork out such a huge fee for Kenwyne. Expect Man City to be heavily linked instead, even though they too have about half a dozen international forwards at the club! Do Gunners fans think the club needs another striker?
