Sunderland have been linked with a 6 ft 7 midfielder in the final week of the January window.

Sunderland look to have finally kickstarted their hunt for midfield reinforcements this week, having been left without a recognised number six since Corry Evans suffered a serious injury in January 2023.

Callum Styles of Barnsley and the Black Cats are supposedly “in negotiations,” and the Hungarian might sign a loan deal with a purchase obligation.

After Styles was left out of The Tykes’ victory against Oxford United yesterday, a deal appears to be well on its way, but it seems like Sunderland is still looking at alternative options.

L’Equipe reports that Michael Beale’s team is thinking about making a move for Skelly Alvero of Lyon.

Alvero has had difficulty playing in France this season, and it is more likely that he will depart the team before the January transfer window ends.

The 21-year-old already rejected a loan move to Belgian outfit RWD Molenbeek, while it has been reported that Werder Bremen are currently leading the race for his signature.

The German side have already made a loan offer with an option to buy in the summer, which could prove to be difficult to compete with for Sunderland.
