Many Sunderland fans have been reacting to the news that CSKA Moscow are interested ing in signing their star striker Charlie Wyke.
Wyke has been in fantastic form as the Black Cats have pushed for promotion this year. In 44 games in all competitions, he has managed 26 goals (Transfermarkt), and only Peterborough’s Jonson Clarke-Harris can boast more than his 22 strikes in League One (BBC).
His impressive displays have reportedly caught the eye of Russian giants CSKA Moscow. It appears that some of their representatives have recently been to England to watch Wyke, along with Clarke-Harris, with a potential view to making an approach (Daily Mail). Given that CSKA competed in the Europa League this term, it could well be a move of interest to Wyke should it materialise.
Should Sunderland sell Wyke?
Despite the 28-year-old’s excellent performances this season, it seems that many Sunderland fans would not be too unhappy to see him depart for Moscow. They took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts on the transfer speculation.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Wyke speculation below
“I’ll buy his plane tickets”
“This may be a controversial opinion, but I’m not bothered if he stays – a striker who doesn’t put himself about as much as he should with his physique and who I have no confidence of scoring when 1 on 1 doesn’t float my boat – he would be useless at championship level if we got up”
“They must be desperate”
“Yes please – need better if we are to progress…still think he’s an average L1 player…”
