Sunderland: Wyke and Grigg will be put to shame should Macauley Bonne be signed

Sunderland: Wyke and Grigg will be put to shame should Macauley Bonne be signed

Macauley Bonne is an incredible player and has proven to be a goal machine for Leyton Orient this season. Having played every single minute of the league season for the O’s as they secured their return to the football league, Bonne has generated a lot of interest from a number of clubs, and Jack Ross would benefit from signing the 23-goal ace.

According to TalkSPORT, the 23-year-old Ipswich born once-capped Zimbabwe star has been the subject of plenty of interest thanks to his performances. Whilst Leyton Orient’s promotion rivals Salford City relied on the goals from former Aberdeen star Adam Rooney in their promotion bid, the O’s have had a great time with Bonne bagging goal on the weekly.

The 23-year-old finished the National League 3rd in the goalscoring charts, with two more goals than Rooney. Both of the pair will be plying their trade in the football league next season, and for the Orient man, he could be making an instant jump through League Two and into either League One or the Championship, depending on the outcome of Sunderland’s Wembley play-off final.

At the moment, Sunderland fans have had to put up with both Will Grigg and Charlie Wyke leading their line. Between themselves, the Black Cats’ two strikers have played 42 League One games this season and have scored eight goals. That tally is blown out of the water by Bonne, even if he is playing at a lower level. Regardless, the 23-year-old should be added as the finishing, pace and power are there.

Jack Ross will know that whatever happens in Monday’s crunch-match against Charlton he will need to be proactive in the transfer market this summer. The Mackems have got a lot of issues in their squad, and when they lost Josh Maja they lost their only guaranteed goal machine, so bringing a new one in is absolutely key, even if they have to dip into League Two to poach Bonne.

Sunderland fans, would you like to sign Macauley Bonne this summer? Comment below?
