Hibs striker Kamberi wanted

Last updated : 14 July 2019 By Steve Forbes

According to reports over the weekend, Hibs striker Florian Kamberi is on the wanted list of a number of English clubs.

The Daily Express is reporting that Brentford, Swansea, Middlesborugh and Portsmouth are weighing up a move for the Swiss forward.

24-year-old Kamberi joined the Hibees from Grasshoppers in a £150,000 deal last summer after an initial loan spell went well.

He has now scored 22 goals in 57 appearances since signing on at Easter Road last summer.

Kamberi's form hit a dip last season after a much publicised fall-out with former boss Neil Lennon, and he was then deployed wide left under new boss Paul Heckingbottom at the end of last season.

Hibs are said to be looking for £2m for the striker and it's thought Swansea, Middlesbrough and Brentford would be willing to mee that valuation, but Portsmouth could be priced out of a move.

Editor's View:

It would be a sore one to take to lose Kamberi, but the Hibees could do a lot with the £2m.

Marc McNulty and Stephane Omeonga are both still wanted at Easter Road, could Hibs use the money to finance a move for them both.

McNulty would be a more natural striker partner for £350,000 capture Christian Doidge, in a 'big/wee' partnership.

Hibs also have a massive hole in their midfield and could really do with signing a couple of quality players in there.

Omeonga would be a cracking start, but they would then need a ball winner in the Marvin Bartley mould.

Both players would'nt come cheap though, but could Hibs test the waters with £400,000 bids for both using the possible Kamberi money?

Whatever happens Hibs boss Paul Heckingbottom still has a bit of work to do.
