Sunderland now told to complete January move for technically gifted PL talent

Sunderland’s midfield options remain restricted due to injuries, so here are three reasons why Dan Gore could be a January target.

This season, the midfield at the Stadium of Light has been relatively thin on the ground.


Corry Evans, Jay Matete, and Pierre Ekwah have all already dealt with injuries, with the latter two being more serious.


This has resulted in more attack-oriented players playing alongside Dan Neil in the pivot.


However, we believe that the team would benefit greatly from acquiring a player who can step into midfield and add some real quality while also potentially being the ideal partner for Neil.


Here are three reasons why Sunderland should sign Dan Gore in January…

Dan Gore is technically insane

Gore, who is only 19 years old, is a player who would be ideal for Tony Mowbray’s Black Cats’ style of play.

Gore is a skillful player who enjoys being on the ball. He also has a low center of gravity and is extremely press resistant.

He would greatly improve Sunderland’s possession play and would thrive at building play out from the back, as his senior debut for United demonstrated when he made a cameo against Crystal Palace in the League Cup.

Defensive attributes

Despite a really strong start to the season, there have been a few worrying moments for Sunderland, most recently the 4-0 defeat to Middlesbrough.

This is something having a player like Gore in midfield could help solve, with his tenacity off the ball.

Gore might play the beautiful game, but he also loves the dirty side too and isn’t afraid to get stuck into a tackle and runs forever.

A player hungry for opportunity

One thing which Gore will undoubtedly bring to Sunderland is a massive desire to be playing.

Gore will have seen the success which his teammate Amad Diallo had here last season and will be keen to replicate.

Giving him the chance to impress benefits him and also our playoff push in the second half of the season.
