Wrexham AFC is undoubtedly the most transformed team in English soccer. The third-oldest club in soccer has endured a period of tough financial and professional situations to become an example for sports teams. But as they now enter the third tier of the English Football League, talks suggest that Ryan Reynolds is expected to sign more players. Hence, one of the stars from EFL League Two could be the perfect fit for a team like Wrexham.

The Red Dragons had a magnificent one-year stay in the fourth tier, showing improvement in all areas of the pitch. Nevertheless, with increased competition, the club would want to strengthen its squad. And who better than Salford City’s Elliot Watt, who has been making waves recently? Let’s delve into the reasons why Phil Parkinson can pursue this potential target.

Wrexham has become the talk of EFL and even rivals have conceded that. But what made it more desirable was its constant and relentless progress. After the acquisition by new owners, the Welsh club has seen back-to-back promotions and is estimated to have the potential even to reach or compete at the Championship, the second tier of English soccer. On the other hand, Elliot has been in League Two for five seasons for Salford and Bradford together and will look to upgrade. And a collaboration with Wrexham can bolster his career as Salford remains in League Two.

Moreover, the star has proven his mettle in the fourth tier. Already known for his strong ball-holding skills, the player has also been effective in the attack a few times. His recent goal directly from a corner kick against Wrexham has left people awestruck and is in contention for League Two’s goal of the season. Additionally, the 24-year-old has already had an impressive 32 assists in his career which makes him tailormade for Ryan Reynold’s club.

Wrexham looking to boost defense with a major target

After missing out on a few transfers last season, Phil Parkinson is already on a mission to seal good deals. According to reports Wrexham is willing to make the loanee goalkeeper, Arthur Okonkwo, permanent. Okonkwo has been a revelation for the Welsh club during his one-year shift from Arsenal. The 22-year-old kept 16 clean sheets in 39 games across all competitions this season and was also selected in League Two’s Team of the Season.

In summary, Wrexham is estimated to enter into the next season with some major changes, and boosting its defense could be one of its priorities. And with a talented pool of young players available in the market, it will be mesmerizing to see who they bring in.
