Hull City remain in talks to sign Brighton & Hove Albion striker Aaron Connolly.
It comes after the striker’s time on loan in the second half of last season. Hull City boss Liam Rosenior has been keen on signing Connolly for a long time now, despite his injury woes at the club last time round.
The Irishman still managed to score twice in five league outings for Hull but should he sign, he’d be another somewhat injury prone striker in the Tigers’ ranks alongside Oscar Estupinan.
Estupinan managed to rack up 35 league outings last season, scoring 13 goals along the way in what was a very impressive debut season. But he’s struggled with an ankle injury throughout his career and Rosenior needs to be wary of having too many players with persistent injuries in his side.
A new striker though looks like a priority this summer and one that’s doing the rounds right now is Sory Kaba. The FC Midtjylland striker spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff City, with his eight goals in 17 outings helping to fire the Bluebirds to safety.
He’s currently being linked with a host of teams including Leeds United and Watford, with Spanish outfit Las Palmas having made a move to sign the 28-year-old.
Cardiff also remain keen on Kaba and it’s easy to see why – he’s a very complete striker who has the physical and technical attributes to really shine in the second tier, which he proved with his performances last time round.
Hull aren’t expected to spend big this summer, but if they have a bit of spending money then a move for Kaba could be much more fruitful than a move for Connolly.
With so many tams interested though, it certainly won’t be an easy pursuit, and Hull City would have to act fast to get a deal over the line.
