Missing out on Mohamed Eisa would be a huge blow to Sunderland

Missing out on Mohamed Eisa would be a huge blow to Sunderland
Sunderland have been busy making a number of changes to their squad this summer as they look forward to the upcoming League One campaign.
With Jack Ross at the helm, Sunderland fans will be hoping that their two-year relegation run will be halted. Moreover, under the control of Steward Donald, the club seems as though it may be starting to turn in the right direction. 
One player who’s been linked with the club recently is League Two striker, Mohamed Eisa. According to Gloucestershire Live, Sunderland have had a bid rejected by Cheltenham and according to the report,  an unnamed Championship club has joined the race to sign the striker, while Portsmouth have also shown an interest. 

The Breakdown

Cheltenham are apparently holding out for a bid of £1.5 million has attracted interest from multiple clubs due to his outstanding season last year.

As it stands, Sunderland only have Chris Maguire and Josh Maja on the books as forwards and desperately need a striker to fire them to promotion next year.

A late bloomer, Eisa only made the step up to professional football last season following playing for Isthmian League Greenwich Borough.

Some might expect the striker to struggle but he excelled and was awarded the supporters’ and players’ ‘player of the year’. The club hasn’t got much to spend this summer but Stewart Donald needs to splash the cash to bring the forward in or risk not having any top class striker to play for the club this season.

Sunderland fans – thoughts?
