Ipswich Town want to sign Bolton Wanderers’ Ben Amos as a replacement for Bartosz Bialkowski according to a report from journalist Alan Nixon.
There have been reports that Bialkowski is set to leave Ipswich. He was one of their best performers last season, being voted as the 28th Best Player in the EFL in our Top 50 Players countdown, and that attracted plenty of attention. And today Alan Nixon revealed that Birmingham City were close to wrapping up a £3m deal which would see Bialkowski move to St Andrews.
However the one caveat was that before Bialkowski completed his move to Birmingham that Ipswich need to get a replacement. And they have the man in mind they want. The Tractor Boys are interested in signing Amos who currently plies his trade for Bolton. He was a regular for Bolton when he first signed for them from Manchester United in 2015 but has since been loaned out to Cardiff City and Charlton Athletic.
This means Amos may be open to a move to Ipswich where he would have an instant claim to the number one jersey. The recent news from Bolton may also boost Ipswich’s chances of signing Amos. They were forced to cancel a friendly with Scottish side St Mirren as their players had gone on strike due to claims of unpaid wages and bonuses. If Amos is among those players who have gone on strike, both sides would most likely be delighted to see him leave the team and head to Ipswich.
