According to The Star, Sheffield Wednesday attacker Fernando Forestieri has insisted that he is happy to stay at the club for the rest of the season.
This comes after journalist Alan Nixon recently said on Twitter that The Owls had valued the attacker at £14m.
The 29-year-old has only played 12 games this season, as he has been blighted by injury. Nonetheless, he has still managed three goals and one assist. Likewise, he only managed 10 Championship appearances last season, managing five goals. He is a threatening player, but has had his injury troubles lately. With many players, it is hard to shake off injuries once they start coming. The Owls could cash in here before the player builds a reputation and other clubs lose interest in him.
Moreover, £14m will be a huge injection of money into a team that are struggling financially. They must comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, and they are currently walking a thin line. To get so much money for a player that has not been at the forefront of the club’s plans as of late would be a huge boon at Hillsborough.
Finally, with Steve Bruce incoming, it is unclear that the Argentinian will even be favoured by the former Aston Villa boss. Of course, there is only one way to find something like this out- keeping him at the club, but with the potential of making quite a deal out of his departure, it is worth Sheffield Wednesday taking the money and running if any club is interested.
