Are Ipswich Town set to sign this prolific striker on a free transfer this summer?
Ipswich Town are already plotting their future with news this week coming out that the clubs owner Marcus Evans is set to make a decision on manager Mick McCarthy’s future and now reports are circulating that the club are looking at signing AFC Wimbledon striker Lyle Taylor this summer.
The ‘Tractor Boys’ are set to face competition for the ‘Dons’ striker signature and its easy to see why. Taylor has found the back of the net on 15 occasions already this season and with his contract coming to an end this summer, this could be a lure for clubs to race to sign him.
It’s the third season on the run that Taylor has hit double figures with goals and as well as being able to play as a central striker the 27-year-old can also play on either wing offering versatility to his game.
With the club starting to look towards signings for the summer does this suggest that Mick McCarthy is set to stay on as manager beyond the end of the season?
This is something for sure that Taylor would want to know before joining the ‘Tractor Boys’ so he knows the manager who brings him to the football club has a future and also so he knows he features in his plans longterm.
If Ipswich do go ahead and sign Taylor this summer, then he will have to take his opportunity when he gets it, as the club already have 5 strikers on their books in the first team.
