Bristol City manager Lee Johnson is believed to be ready to search the transfer market for an all-round quality forward player according to reports from Bristol Live.
The Robins have won just one of their last six matches in the Sky Bet Championship while they have averaged just a goal a game in their last four league outings.
The January transfer window could now provide Bristol City boss Johnson with a huge opportunity to improve his squad and get the club’s season back on track. It has been reported that Johnson will focus on bringing a quality all-round striker to Ashton Gate as the club look to improve their goal tally.
At this stage, their is no particular striker being linked with Bristol City, however, Johnson’s ideal target is being described as a ‘nine-and-a-half’, someone physical who can bring others into play whilst also having the ability to score goals themselves.
Austrian forward Andreas Weimann is Bristol City’s top scorer with five goals in all competitions but he has not scored since August while Famara Diedhiou has netted just twice in his last 12 outings. The Robins’ 24 goals scored in the Sky Bet Championship this season have been shared across a number of sources and the club lack the 20-goal a season striker who could help them achieve a top six finish.
