Sunderland’s season has continued in strong fashion as they remain confident of fighting for a place in the Championship next season.
Whilst they’re currently in 3rd place, the automatic places are potentially just one point away, if they manage to win their game in hand.
With that in mind plus the fact there are 14 games still to play, Sunderland have the right group of players to sustain a promotion push.
Jack Ross has already made a huge difference around the club but some may feel that promotion must be gained this season, if not, their better players will leave and it will be a case of starting all over again.
Whatever division they play their football in next season, Southampton’s Sam Gallagher is a striker equipped to play in either and would pose as another great forward option for the Black Cats.
Gallagher, (who is valued at £2.7 million on Transfermarkt) will be feeling very disappointed as to how few opportunities he has had to impress this season.
Even with Southampton sat in the relegation zone, the 23-year-old’s services have been called upon for just seven minutes in the Premier League, as his exit from St Marys’ seems destined to happen sooner rather than later.
Having not moved in January, Sam Gallagher was a missed opportunity for a number of sides. He scored seven goals in total for Championship side Birmingham, meaning if Sunderland got promoted or not, he would be a good option in either league.
The Black Cats do currently have a number of capable strikers but it doesn’t hurt to add more firepower to their squad, something Sam Gallagher would undoubtedly give them.
