LATEST UPDATE : Coventry City manager lists three key players the team is attempting to sign this summer.

We’ve looked at three dreamy but realistic Coventry City transfers that the club should make this summer.
The Sky Blues are once again in and around the top six, but unlike last season, when they reached the play-off final, they appear to have fallen short of reaching the play-offs entirely.

However, Mark Robins’ side has had another remarkable season, starting slowly but quickly moving into play-off contention.

While they have had a successful FA Cup run, the club will be optimistic that they can close the gap and return to the top six at the very least next season.

Coventry experienced a lot of turnover last summer, as they lost key players Viktor Gyokeres and Gus Hamer. The team may lose one or two players, but they intend to keep outgoings to a minimum this time. With the summer transfer window approaching, we’ve compiled a list of three potential targets for Coventry City.

Josh Knight

The first player on this list is Josh Knight, a defender with Peterborough United.

The 26-year-old has been with Posh since 2021, when he signed on a permanent basis from Leicester City.

The defender has been a key contributor for the side since arriving, helping them in the Championship as well as reaching the League One play-offs in the last two seasons.

Knight’s contract expires at the end of this season, and given how well he has done in League One, he could be someone that a team like Coventry City looks at.

This is because the Sky Blues may need to strengthen that area of the pitch in this summer transfer window, as the club has four recognised centre-backs currently, and one of those, Luis Binks, is on loan from Bologna.

Therefore, he will need to be replaced, and Knight could be the one to do that. As he has shown for a number of seasons now, he is a very steady defender who can also operate in other areas of the pitch.

Knight has been among the goals this season, and if he can help Peterborough get back to the Championship, his stock could be even higher, making him someone that Championship clubs consider. He may not come in and be a regular starter, but he could be a good squad player to have in a team like Coventry’s.

Chris Willock

The second player on this three-man list is Queens Park Rangers midfielder Chris Willock, who, given his contract situation, will be a target for most Championship clubs this summer.

The 26-year-old’s contract with the Rs ends at the end of the season, and with no hint of a new deal being struck, he will be available for free this summer.

So he will most certainly be a highly sought-after player, and Coventry should be keeping an eye on his position.

Willock has been a breath of new air for QPR since joining the club in 2020, scoring goals and creating opportunities.

This season hasn’t been his best in terms of numbers, but that might not be too much of a surprise given that it has been a poor campaign overall for QPR.

But last season, Willock showed once again what he can do at this level, as he scored six goals and chipped in with two assists in 28 league games.

Willock can operate in the number 10 role as well as out wide, and this may benefit Coventry, as the club looks set to lose Callum O’Hare this summer as his contract also comes to an end, so the Sky Blues will need to find a suitable replacement, and Willock could be ideal.

The midfielder has plenty of experience at this level and has shown he’s got goals and creativity in his game, something Coventry will need with O’Hare leaving.

Macaulay Langstaff

As previously stated, Gyokeres left Coventry, necessitating Mark Robins’ search for a replacement striker.

The Sky Blues did more than simply bring one forward; they welcomed two in, with Ellis Simms joining Haji Wright last summer.

Both players have done exceptionally well in their first season, leading the way as the club’s top scorers.

However, there is a significant drop-off after that, and with other forward Matt Godden making little impact this season, Robins may try to reinforce his forward line once more.

If that’s the case, Notts County striker Macauley Langstaff might be a very real target for Coventry and an addition that would

Their promotion chances will undoubtedly improve.
The 27-year-old has been with the League Two club for two seasons and has already scored 60 or more goals, including at least 25 in his last three seasons with Notts County and Gateshead.

So, Langstaff is a natural finisher, and while he has not previously played in the Championship, he will undoubtedly be considered by several second-tier clubs, including Coventry City.
