Following the signing of Kristian Dennis yesterday, Tranmere has shown intent in the transfer market. However, there needs to be a renewal of the squad for Rovers to achieve their aims.
Here are five players that Tranmere should look at for signing this summer.
After recently departing Forest Green Rovers, Luke McGee could be an option for Rovers if they can’t nail down a contract extension for Joe Murphy.
A product of the Tottenham Hotspur academy, McGee’s breakthrough into men’s football came with a loan spell at Peterborough United.
He’s since had cameos for Portsmouth and Bradford City before joining Forest Green ahead of the 2020-21 season. McGee was instrumental in between the sticks for the Greens, winning goalkeeper of the month during that time as well as the League Two title.
A loan spell at Derby came, but McGee made no appearances as he acted as backup to Joe Wildsmith.
Upon release, McGee could be snapped up by any side, and Tranmere could be one of them.
Having recently departed Wolves, Matheson has had League Two pedigree recently, so the young right-back could be used as an alternative or a starter if Josh Dacres-Cogley did decide to move on for pastures new.
Matheson signed for Wolves from Rochdale and has had multiple loans out since then, including back to Dale, but after being released by the Midlands-based side, the 20-year-old England youth international will have many clubs after his signature, and he’s a player that Tranmere could dig into the market to buy.
Currently at Harrogate Town, Pattison has proven he’s a real threat at League Two level and could offer fresh impetus into Tranmere’s engine room.
Pattison’s former clubs are Middlesbrough, York, Yeovil, and Wycombe, and after departing the Chairboys after their relegation from the Championship, he joined Harrogate.
He’s proved to be an impressive figure for the Railwaymen as they’ve continued to stave off relegation, but a next move away from Yorkshire is pending, and Tranmere could be the perfect fit.
Hendry really impressed on loan from Forest Green at Tranmere in the recent season, showing his underlying knowledge of the level and offering a creative spark.
It was unfortunate that he came into Rovers at a time of decline, but nevertheless he looked impressive when he featured and he drove the midfield forward, as well as chipping in with multiple goal contributions.
It’s a necessity that Tranmere add a creative spark into the midfield with Chris Merrie staying, who is a tough-tackling, solid midfielder, and Hendry could be the answer.
Location depending and a wildcard option, Sagaf has proved himself at National League level and has featured in League Two previously, so it could be one Tranmere look for.
Any creative spark is needed in that Tranmere side, and Sagaf could provide it as another fuel to the fire, displaying attributes such as a physical and strong body as well as providing up the right end of the pitch in terms of goals and assists.
Sagaf was really well thought of by Dagenham and Redbridge, and with many teams battling for his signature, Tranmere could use him as an option and potentially join the race for the playmaker.
