He would be a solid addition for most Championship sides, wouldn’t he? Sheffield Wednesday have been able to count on Lucas Joao across the course of the season and, if he was to stay in South Yorkshire for the upcoming campaign, he still has more to offer Steve Bruce’s side.
It is no real surprise to see Joao linked with other outfits as a result of his goalscoring record this season in the League as he has netted 10 goals in 18 starts for the Owls. According to the ExaminerLive, the 25-year-old is suggested to be on Jan Siewert’s radar ahead of the summer.
Given the potential move in the offing, here, we discuss what could be best for Joao’s future…
Town have struggled for a consistent goal outlet throughout the season with only Karlan Grant posing a true striking threat since his move to the Terriers in January.
If Siewert is looking for another clinical finisher, someone for Grant to play off and join him up top, then Joao could be the man. Considering his ability to link up play and his record in the Championship over the last two seasons, then he could prove to be a fine bit of business as Town bid to return to the top flight at the first time of asking.

Barring Joao’s spell on the sidelines as a result of injury, he has been a regular throughout the season and has surely proven himself under differing managers this season.
Although, he is not a guaranteed starter and if Wednesday does bring in another striking option this summer, he may be pushed down the pecking order which could only hinder his game time if he does stay.
TT Grade: B-
Although Joao is sure to be comfortable at Wednesday and a part of the plans there, a move to a club where he could potentially be a starter week-in-week-out presents a good opportunity to try something new and at the John Smith’s Stadium, he could even take his game to the next level.
Owls and Terriers, where do you think he should end up? Join the discussion by commenting below…
