Huddersfield Town have been struggling lately in the Premier League as they have failed to win even a single game in their last six league outings. On Saturday, they were defeated 2-0 by Stoke City at bet365 Stadium and are not very far away from the relegation zone. Maintaining their current status of being a Premier League status does hold significant importance and thus, they must up the ante soon.
The Terriers have recently concluded the signing of Alex Pritchard from Norwich City a few days ago but must beef up their arsenal further. As per one of the latest reports, David Wagner has put Eintracht Braunschweig’s winger, Onel Hernandez. Apart from them, the Canaries and Wolverhampton Wanderers are also monitoring him closely for the calibre he possesses.
However, The Sun has reported that Norwich City have tabled a bid of £1.7million and are in the pole position to make him sign on the dotted line. After sanctioning the move of Pritchard to Kirklees Stadium, Daniel Farke have the cash to splash on acquiring the services of Hernandez and thus, it goes without saying that it would not be easy for Wagner’s side to sign him.
Nonetheless, Huddersfield Town must refrain from accepting defeat and try to impose a strong challenge to Norwich City. Hernandez is currently plying his trade in 2. Bundesliga with Braunschweig and has scored 1 goal and has registered 2 assists in 17 appearances for the German outfit and it is perceived that he is now desirous to make a move to English football, thus alerting the aforesaid English clubs.
The 24-year-old is an excellent dribbler and is very player in terms of physicality. Time and again, he has cultivated spectacular crosses into the box of the opposition and the manner he gallops forward with blistering pace is indeed a treat to watch. Although he isn’t an astute passer of the ball, he does tend to push the game forward and constantly vouches to create chances for his teammates.
However, the German isn’t really good at holding the ball and doesn’t commit himself to cater to the defensive duties of his side as much as he should. Besides, he lacks the experience of English football, something which might be seen with grave suspicion by Wagner or any other manager before signing him. Nonetheless, he is more than a capable winger and it would be intriguing to see where the speculation goes from here onward.
