Coventry City has identified five players that should be on the club’s January transfer radar.

Coventry should be looking at these players if they want to get a chance at promotion

Coventry were in excellent form and on their way to the play-offs by late May. They defeated fourth-placed Middlesbrough in the play-off semi-final to get to Wembley, but were defeated on penalties by Luton Town.

They sold two of their top attacking threats, Viktor Gyokeres and Gustavo Hamer, over the summer. In May, the two linked beautifully to score the Sky Blues’ lone goal at Wembley.

However, they were able to get a lot out of the pairing. Sporting Lisbon paid £20 million for the Swedish striker, while Sheffield United paid £15 million for Hamer.

Players such as Haji Wright and Ellis Simms were brought in to replace them, but the team has yet to regain the consistency that it had at the close of last season.

They’ve only won three of their first ten league games, and given the tough nature of the Championship, January might be a vital month for Coventry to improve.

Here are five players who should be on the club’s January transfer radar right now.

Coventry’s weak weaknesses are easily identified as defensive solidity and producing big chances. They’ve conceded the same number of goals as Swansea, who are 20th in the Championship standings, and the player who has generated the most huge chances for them is Hamer, who is no longer even on the team.

If you need more defensive stability on the left side of the field, Lowe is a great alternative.

He was a reliable performer for Sheffield United during their promotion-winning season. Last season, he made more tackles per game than any other player in the English second tier. In addition, he had a total of six goals and assists.

His playing time has been reduced since the club’s promotion to the Premier League, therefore the Blades could be interested in signing him.

Cotter could be a wise option if an attacking threat out wide is desired. The Irishman prefers to play off the right flank, but he’s proven he can play on both sides of the field.

He’s just been at Barnsley since the beginning of the year, and they bought him for a pittance in today’s market, so he won’t be too pricey.

This season, the 24-year-old has two goals and three assists in League One. He’s produced four big opportunities (situations in which a player could fairly be expected to score) and played one important pass each game (the final pass from a player to a teammate who subsequently attempts to score but fails).

This season, Cotter has seen action both as a starter and as a sub. He has started six of the club’s eleven games and has come off the bench in the others. This demonstrates that he could be a good affordable alternative who can provide variety to a team that loves to attack with width.

This German midfielder enjoys roaming the field and is at ease wherever on the field. He generally plays on the left side of a midfield duo, but he’s equally at home on both foot.

Löwen now plays for St. Louis City in the MLS, where he has six goals and nine assists in 27 league appearances. He has a 7.38 Sofascore rating over the previous 12 months.

Because his contract will not expire until the end of 2026, he may be more expensive than other possibilities. However, the 26-year-old possesses evident attributes that might greatly benefit Coventry.

The financial precedent for Championship teams signing League One strikers was set this summer when Rotherham paid £1 million for Sam Nombe. He hadn’t scored a league goal at the time of his signing, but he had 15 the previous season.

Cole, on the other hand, had five goals by the time Nombe moved to the Championship, and he’s added five more since. This season, his conversion rate is over 40%; that’s absurd. As a result, Barnsley are likely to demand a multi-million pound fee for the 28-year-old.


He appears to be ready to play in the Championship, and City may be his top suitors.

Another prospective League One signing. This and last season, the centre-back has been a rock for Lincoln City.

When it comes to ball recoveries and clearances, the Irishman excels. He may not be able to break into the starting XI right away, but at 26 years old and with Kyle McFadzean not getting any younger, this might be a long-term move.
