Kieran McKenna’s side is fighting for promotion to the Premier League at the top of the second division table.
The Tractor Boys are on a meteoric ascent after finishing second in League One last year and earning promotion to the second division.
It would be an incredible feat if they could achieve back-to-back promotions, but it is very feasible at this point in the season.
Who should Ipswich Town look to sign in the January transfer window?
The January transfer window could be a crucial opportunity for the Suffolk club to strengthen their first-team group in order to challenge for a top-two berth.
Here are five prospective winter acquisitions that the Championship club should be considering.
The Manchester United winger is presently out injured, leaving his future uncertain.
While he may still play a role in Erik ten Hag’s side, the potential of him being loaned out in January is all too real.
If that’s the case, Ipswich should definitely throw their hat in the ring to sign him.
The forward may be a game changer, bringing depth to the squad’s offensive options and potentially securing promotion this season.
Hutchinson has impressed during his loan spell with Ipswich this season after joining from Chelsea in the summer.
The January transfer window could be a good time to try to make it a permanent trade, since the forward has demonstrated the ability to compete with Ipswich in the long run.
Pushing for a permanent move in January would also free up room in the club for another loan deal, which may be helpful.
Bird was linked with a move to Hull City in the summer, but injury prevented him from leaving Pride Park.
He has recently returned to action with Paul Warne’s side, where he has impressed in League One.
He might have a big influence at Ipswich if he signed in January, offering the team a new dimension in midfield at a cheap fee.
Middlesbrough, Stoke City, and Swansea City are all interested in signing the Barnsley striker.
Ipswich have been outstanding in attack this season, but having an extra option up front could be just what they need to keep going for the rest of the season.
Cole’s goal scoring efforts in League One have been outstanding, and it may be worthwhile to take a chance on him in January to try to get promotion.
Blackburn have not had a great start to the season, but one player who has stood out is Szmodics.
The forward is a dynamic attacking option that can both lead the line and provide creativity from midfield.
Given Blackburn’s current financial situation, it may be worthwhile to try to recruit the 28-year-old to help the club’s promotion chances.
