Will Wycombe’s newest signing be the answer to their goalscoring problems?

The arrival this week of 22-year-old Admiral Muskwe on loan from Leicester City boosts the attacking options for manager Gareth Ainsworth, and the striker is in line to make his debut in Saturday’s third round FA Cup tie against Preston North End at Adams Park.

Muskwe is a former England youth international who has won senior caps for his family’s home country, Zimbabwe.

He is over six feet tall and described by Ainsworth as being ‘quick, physically strong and with a great scoring record.’

He joined Leicester’s youth system at the age of nine and signed his first professional contract with the former Premier League champions in 2016 after being voted their Academy Player of the Season.

A prolific scorer for Leicester’s Development Squad, Muskwe was soon promoted to their Under 21 team, and once scored two goals against a Chelsea outfit packed with some of the finest young talent in Europe.

The striker’s potential was spotted by scouts for England’s U17 squad, and he went on to earn four caps at that level in a team that included Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Muskwe’s home nation Zimbabwe identified him as a star in the making, and he made his full international debut for them in 2017, winning four caps to date.

His twin sister Adelaide is also a Zimbabwe international at netball and she describes Admiral as her ‘number one fan.’

Wycombe’s new striker gained valuable experience last season when he helped Swindon Town earn promotion as champions of League Two, but his loan spell ended early when the season was curtailed due to coronavirus.

Admiral now joins a Wanderers squad that has scored just 16 goals in 23 Championship games, and whilst it is unrealistic to expect a young and inexperienced player to solve all their problems, if he proves as successful as Josh Knight, the club’s other loan signing from Leicester, Wanderers will have unearthed another gem.
