Our Sunderland fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for some good signings this month and, according to The Sun, they might be about to get on in the form of Ryad Boudebouz.
Our landlord nearly dropped the pint glasses he was clearing up when this news first started circulating around the Tavern as he knows just how good Boudebouz has been for current club Montpellier.
He’s a real creative force in behind the striker and so if Sunderland were to bring him in they’d certainly be getting quite the player.
The attacking midfielder is one of the current crop of talented Algerians at the moment with the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Rachid Ghezzal often alongside him for the national team.
Our landlord had thought, then, that he might move on to one of the big European clubs and so for Sunderland to be linked says a lot about their obvious pull even if they are in the drop-zone.
The Black Cats need something to get them out of trouble right now and Boudebouz could just be the answer.
