Ipswich Town Eyeing Premier League Swoop For £6.4 Million-Rated Duo

Ipswich Town are keen to bolster their squad this summer ahead of what will be a gruelling task of surviving in the Premier League following promotion this season.

The Tractor Boys have already completed their most astute piece of business of the transfer market when the club announced that Kieran McKenna had penned a new four-year deal, keeping him at Portman Road until 2028 at the earliest, having guided the Suffolk-based outfit to back-to-back promotions to the top-flight to become the first team since Southampton in 2012 to pull off this incredible feat.

This unprecedented promotion has allowed Ipswich to reap the financial fruits of Premier League football at long last. Over the past few weeks, football finance expert Kieran Maguire has predicted that the club will make £150 million for just one season in the top-flight. In comparison, the East Anglian side made £37 million the last time they played in the Premier League over two decades ago.

Now, Ipswich Town will have some wiggle room in the summer to strengthen the squad. There have already been a number of names on the recruitment department’s list, including Brighton and Hove Albion goalkeeper Carl Rushworth. Darren Witcoop is reporting that the Tractor Boys are monitoring the shot-stopper’s situation on the south coast and are waiting to see whether the Seagulls give the ex-Swansea City and Lincoln City keeper the green light to leave over the coming months or not.

Furthermore, Sussex World released a report on Tuesday night claiming that Ipswich are hoping to bring Jeremy Sarmiento back to the club after the attacker spent the second half of the campaign on loan at Portman Road and the first at West Bromwich Albion. These two players have a combined market value of £6.4 million, as per Transfermarkt.

The summer transfer window opens next Friday and Ipswich Town have already identified a list of candidates that they will pursue over the coming weeks. Rushworth and Sarmiento can now be added to a rather lengthy catalogue of names.

While Sarmiento, in particular, popped up with some important goals throughout the season, namely his stoppage-time strike against Southampton to seal a huge three points in the promotion race, the Ecuador international wasn’t a regular starter. It would make a lot more sense to ensure that Ipswich sign Omari Hutchinson on another loan from Chelsea at the very least.
