Why Norwich City should go all out to sign Kingsley Schindler in January
According to a report from German outlet Fussball Transfers, Norwich City are interested in Holstein Kiel wide-man Kingsley Schindler.
Kingsley Schindler, 25, scored 12 goals in 33 appearances for Holstein Kiel last season. He has managed to replicate that form, netting five goals and as many assists in 15 Bundesliga 2 games this term.
The Hamburg-born forward, however, will be out of contract at the end of the season and hasn’t yet signed a new deal with Holstein Kiel. With Kingsley Schindler in red-hot form, Norwich City must go all out to sign him.
Norwich City have powered their way to the top of the Championship table with the likes of Teemu Pukki, Onel Hernandez, Emi Buendia and Moritz Leitner making a stellar impact at Carrow Road. Daniel Farke deserves credit for patiently sticking with his plans when at one point in time it looked likely that he could get the boot after his team’s poor start to the new season.
And as things stand, the Canaries have a fantastic opportunity to get themselves promoted, provided Farke strengthens his side in January. A couple of additions next month would do a world of good for Norwich if they are to sustain the demands of Championship football.
Even if reinforcing the attack isn’t a priority for the Canaries, they should do it next month to add depth to the squad and competition for the likes of Pukki, Buendia and Hernandez. To put things into perspective, Norwich must not hesitate to sign Kingsley Schindler.
A technically-gifted player and a tactically-versatile player, Schindler is comfortable in attacking and advanced roles in the midfield but has also been deployed as a right-winger or a wide forward in a 4-3-3 formation. He uses his low centre of gravity to good effect, displaying exceptional close control in tight areas and has the ability to create something out of nothing.
The 25-year-old can play incisive passes in the final third and take up intelligent positions to draw defenders out of position. Schindler is a good crosser of the ball and always loves to cut inside from the right flank before supplying a through ball for his teammate. Furthermore, his decision-making in the final third is also of the highest quality and he can finish off chances as well.
