The Cardiff fans in the Transfer Tavern are delighted to have returned to the Premier League but realise that they will need to acquire some talent in the transfer window in order to sustain their top-flight status.
Neil Warnock has done a tremendous job with his Cardiff side but to improve them going forward, the 69-year-old should look at what Jordan Hugill, who is valued at £7.2 million by Transfer Markt, could bring to the Bluebirds.
The big, physical forward was a handful for Championship side Preston and following his impressive performances, West Ham acquired his services in January. Since then, Hugill has been limited to just 30 minutes of match-time with the Hammers understandably preferring option such as Marko Arnautovic, Javier Hernandez and Andy Carroll in his place. West Ham may be unwilling to get rid of Hugill just yet seeing as he hasn’t had a good run in the team to prove whether he could be an influential player for them or not.
Nevertheless, Jordan Hugill is completely Neil Warnock’s type of player. The 25-year-old is good in the air, likes a physical battle with defenders and continuously tries to bully the opposition.
As proven by Cardiff’s very own Kenneth Zahore this season, that type of bullish striker is hard to defend against and a front line of Zahore and Hugill may not be the most glamorous but they certainly wouldn’t give the Premier League defenders a moment’s rest.
At 25-years-old, Hugill’s career could be at a make-or-break point, is he good enough for the Premier League and does he need a move to a team like Cardiff to establish his true potential?
