Sheffield Wednesday’s Kadeem Harris says reported Derby County and Owls target Kenneth Zohore is unplayable on his day, the Sheffield Star report.

The West Bromwich Albion striker has been heavily linked with a summer move.

Zohore cost West Brom £8 million from Cardiff City last year.

The Dane, however, struggled for regular playing time during West Brom’s promotion campaign last term and a move back to the Championship is on the cards.

According to the Northern Echo, Derby, the Owls and Middlesbrough are keen.

When asked about the possibility of signing his former Cardiff City teammate, Owls midfielder Kadeem Harris gave Zohore rave reviews,

He’s very physical, he’s also quite quick as well when he gets going and when he’s full of confidence he’s unplayable at times. He’s quite quiet, but you know he’s on the pitch when he’s on the pitch and that’s the most important thing. He’d definitely be a great addition to the squad if he did come.

Sheffield Wednesday may view Zohore as an ideal replacement for Steven Fletcher.

Fletcher joined Stoke City, leaving a void at Hillsborough. With Garry Monk’s side facing an uphill battle after their points deduction, Zohore could make a big difference.

 

Middlesbrough’s interest doesn’t come as a great surprise. The striker played his best form at Cardiff under Neil Warnock, firing the Bluebirds to promotion in 2018.

The Rams are desperate for a player who can drop short and link the play. Jack Marriott likes to play on the shoulder, while Martyn Waghorn is currently out injured.

Manager Phillip Cocu has strengthened his side with the arrival of Kamil Jozwiak. However, the Derby boss has been vocal in wanting one or two more attacking additions.
