Is this attacking midfielder the answer to Birmingham City’s goalscoring problems?
Birmingham City have struggled this season on the pitch as they find themselves in 23rd in the league table, but back to back victories against Leeds United and Reading, have helped turn their fortunes around and both manager Steve Cotterill and the clubs supporters will be hoping this is the start of good spell.
One major problem that the ‘Blues’ have encountered this season is finding the back of the net as they have scored just 15 goals in the league in 26 games. Che Adams leads the clubs goalscoring chart with 5 goals, with striker Sam Gallagher close behind him on 4 goals, but Cotterill will be hoping to add firepower to his team this month to help give the club every chance of staying in the Championship.
With that in mind, the club should turn to Walsall attacking midfielder Erhun Oztumer.
Erhun Oztumer – The tricky attacking midfielder has been the star player for Walsall over the past couple of seasons, and he enters the last few months of his current contract there will be much speculation as to where he will end up.
Having his best season in front of goal last season where he scored 15 goals, Oztumer is on course to beat that tally this season as he has already found the back of the net on 10 occasions.
Alongside his goalscoring ability, he also provides for his teammates as he has had 6 assists in each of the last two seasons and has provided 3 goals for his team this season.
