Huddersfield Town

Wagner's wish list gets longer

22nd December 2018, 12:04 by Nick Harris

Huddersfield's transfer target list is getting longer as the January window approaches, according to manager David Wagner.

The Terriers are in dire need of a goalscorer in their bid to survive a second season in the Premier League and additional firepower is likely to be Wagner's number one priority.

"You can trust me, I try to do this job as well as I can as a manager and if the window is in front of you, you have to prepare yourself as best you can," he said.

"I have a list and a pen and sometimes I put some more names on the list. I do what every manager does at this time of the season."

Town's 10 goals in 17 matches this season is the top flight's lowest return and none of those have been scored by the club's current strikers.

Steve Mounie, back in contention for Saturday's home game against fellow strugglers Southampton after serving a three-game ban, and Laurent Depoitre have yet to get off the mark.

"I can't and I will not discuss any names," Wagner said when asked who was on his list. "Like I said, we try to do our job as properly as always.

"Nobody knows what will happen in this window. This is the only thing I can say because nothing is clear or certain. Anything can happen or nothing, this is the truth."
