Many Sunderland fans are desperate for the club to sign Giorgi Aburjania after the Black Cats were linked with a move for the Georgia international.
We are coming cloeer to the start of the 2021/22 campaign, yet the Wearsiders do not appear to be in the best position for the August kick-off. They have lost several players lately, including Josh Scowen, Grant Leadbitter and Max Power (The Northern Echo), while Charlie Wyke appears to be closing in on a move to Celtic (Football Insider). Not only that, they are yet to make a single summer signing as Lee Johnson’s side attempt to earn promotion to the Championship.
However, it does seem that they at least have some targets in mind. As per Spanish outlet Sport Cartagena, Sunderland are interested in signing 26-year-old midfielder Aburjania this summer. He has 22 caps for his country and currently plays in the Spanish second tier with Cartagena.

The news has been doing the rounds on Twitter and has attracted plenty of attention from Black Cats supporters. These fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on the links with the Georgian midfielder.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Aburjania rumour
“From these clips he looks solid defensively and can clearly pick out a pass. Looks very comfortable on the ball, doesn’t panic when pressured and can beat a few players also. This new scouting team may have found a gem here like.”
“Random Georgian international I’ve never heard of…..this is exactly the sort of signing I love!”
“A central midfielder who runs towards the opposition’s goal at pace using skill and technique coming to Sunderland, what type of witchcraft is this. This has to be fake news. I will believe it when he’s holding the strip!”
“After watching clips he’s the midfielder we have lacked for years, someone who can dribble and run with the ball with power and speed. Bring him in with that United lad and Embleton we will be solid.”
“The only issue is a work permit and how long it would take to sort one with the new rules. Hopefully the club have all this in place”
“Sounds very good and I think he will be a star player in League One. Looks the player we were lacking many years.”
