Sunderland will already have their eyes on some targets for next summer in the event of promotion, here are three free transfers.

Sunderland sit in the play-off positions and among one of the favourites to remain in that position.

Tony Mowbray has done a fine job building this Sunderland side into what it is, and we expect he will be keen to continue.

With such a young core, promotion should see some more experienced faces arrive to stabilise and attempt to ensure they remain in the top division.

So, if promotion is achieved, here are three ambitious targets Sunderland could target for free in 2024…

Scott McKenna

Scott McKenna has established himself as a solid Premier League defender at Nottingham Forest recently, along with a regular for Scotland.


McKenna would be a hugely ambitious target for the Black Cats and one who could help solidify a sometimes leaky defence.

In order to lure him away from Forest, Sunderland would need to be a team clearly primed for Premier League football, if he is to commit to joining the club when his current contract ends.

At 26-years-old, McKenna is in his prime and would be excellent alongside Dan Ballard and Luke O’Nien in defence.

Stefano Sensi

Nine cap Italian Stefano Sensi is out of favour at Inter Milan right now, but for Sunderland he could be among the key men.

At 28-years-old, Sensi will be in his prime and has shown his ability over the years to suggest he’s better than a bit-part player.

Next to Dan Neil in midfield, Sensi could form a formidable midfield on and off the ball.

Potentially a really exciting deal.

Konstantin Tyukavin

21-year-old Russian striker Konstantin Tyukavin is a player who’s stock is on the rise.

Three goals and four assists in 11 league games this year for Dynamo Moscow puts him on the path for a move to a better league.

With his contract expiring in June 2024, he could be a real bargain at that price which could also solve Sunderland’s striker woes.
