Summer Transfer Window: Grant Holt

Grant Holt could be the next to leave Carrow Road
It has beena rough start to the offseason for Norwich City as they have already lost their manager Paul Lambert to Aston Villa and there could be more players still to leave. Grant Holt wants to leave Norwich City since Lambert is gone but Norwich is trying to do everything they can to keep him. However, Norwich City will not be able to keep Holt as he will be headed for a bigger Premier League club. Holt will have tons of options after he scored 15 goals in the Premier League last season as so many teams could use an upgrade. So, where will Holt be headed in this transfer window?

Aston Villa
Paul Lambert will definitely look to bring his star striker to Villa Park as Holt knows exactly what to expect from Lambert. A move for Holt would give the Villa fans a dangerous pair of strikers in Darren Bent and Holt, but this would force Lambert to move Gabriel Agbonlahor to left or right midfield as Agbonlahor has that versatility. Holt and Bent coulod become one of the most dangerous attacking duos in the Premier League as they could provide Aston Villa with tons of goals. A Holt move to Villa Park is realistic but Norwich could block Lambert from buying Norwich players for a year, just like how Swansea has blocked Brendan Rodgers from bringing Swansea players to Liverpool after Rodgers left for Anfield.

Martin O'Neill has been looking to find an elite striker as Stephane Sessegnon is not a natural striker and is more of a central forward that can play behind a true number nine in a 4-4-1-1. Holt would be that perfect striker for O'Neill as he is a proven scorer that can be got at a fairly cheap price (5 to 7 million euros or 6 to 8.5 million dollars). Holt would be that dominant scorer that could fit perfectly in Martin O'Neill's side as Holt and Sessegnon could help make Sunderland a long shot to contend for a shot to play in Europe. O'Neill will definitely look at bringing Holt to the Stadium of Light.

West Ham
West Ham have been considering a move for Grant Holt as he would be an immediate starter beside Carlton Cole for the Hammers. Sam Allardyce would love to add a veteran prescence like Holt to his squad and he could make a double swoop for Holt and goalkeeper John Ruddy as Allardyce is looking for a replacement for Malaga target Robert Green. Holt would be an effective player at Upton Park as he could definitely help Allardyce keep West Ham in the Premier League next season.

Reading has just made its return to the Premier League as Reading is now owned by a Russian billionaire as he will want to have tons of success in the Premier League. Reading manager Brian Mcdermott needs an upgrade at striker and Holt would be the perfect fit as they look to survive in the Premier Leauge. Holt would be the elite goal scorer that Reading has been needing as he could be a star for a Reading team that could have a large amount of money to spend in this transfer window.

Martin Jol may need to look for some new strikers as Clint Dempsey and Moussa Dembele a\have been linked with moves away from Craven Cottage, and true strikers Pavel Pogrebnyak and Andy Johnson are available on free transfers. Holt could be one of multiple strikers to go to Fulham as Martin Jol look for a dominant striker. Holt could get regular time at Fulham as he could be the proven goal scorer that they only just recently found in Pogrebnyak. Holt is a perfect fit at Craven Cottage as a move for Holt is very realistic this transfer window.

The chance that Holt goes to Tottenham is very slim but a Spurs for move the Englishman makes tons of sense as Spurs have only one true striker right now in Jermaine Defoe as they may not be able to afford to keep loan wonder Emmanuel Adebayor and Louis Saha is without a contract. Holt would be the perfect fit as he is a proven goalscroer that would be willing to battle Defoe for a starting spot since Tottenham is playing in Europe. Holt knows that playing at White Hart Lane can give him the best shot at making Englnad's roster for the 2014 World Cup as Holt would definitely take a move to Tottenham if offered the opportunity.
