Scottish publication The Courier have claimed that Coventry City boss Mark Robins sent a scout to cast an eye over Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland.
Sky Blues boss Robins followed up his excellent promotion and title winning League One season last term with a number of significant arrivals at the club.
A whole host of new faces came into the Warwickshire based club including the likes of Gustavo Hamer, Ben Sheaf and Callum O’Hare.
Starting the Championship season, the Sky Blues lost their opening fixture against Bristol City but an excellent result at the weekend saw Robins’ side beat Queens Park Rangers.
Following that victory, Robins has now been linked with a potential 10th summer signing in the form of Shankland.
The report claims that a Coventry scout attended Dundee United’s 2-1 win over St Mirren, a game which saw the striker score an impressive volley.
This could prove to be a superb signing for Coventry and one that would add some consistently proven firepower to Mark Robins’ squad.
Shankland’s record in Scottish football is impressive to say the least, last season alone he netted 24 goals in just 26 Championship appearances for Dundee United.
Whilst he may need time to adjust to the life in England, a striker with such a pedigree would still be well worth a gamble.
Do you think Shankland would make a good signing for Coventry City this summer? Let us know in the comments section below…
