Although Wycombe’s squad is already a relatively strong one, Gareth Ainsworth and his backroom team have some work to do concerning new signings for the 2021/22 League One season.

With more than two months of the close season still remaining, there’s still plenty of time, and recruitment and scouting processes will already have been underway for a number of months.

Wanderers will have a slightly larger budget than they’ve become used to in recent years, with increased revenue from the Championship campaign and from the recent sale of Fred Onyedinma giving Wycombe the chance to pay a fee for some players, as they did for Uche Ikpeazu and Daryl Horgan last summer.

However, the majority of the club’s signings will still be free transfers and loan deals of course.

The Chairboys currently have 18 first-team players under contract for next season, with talks still ongoing with Adebayo Akinfenwa, and ‘development’ players such as Andre Burley and Curtis Anderson potentially ready to make the step up.

Anderson may be the man to challenge David Stockdale for the number one shirt in League One, although the club may opt to bring in a slightly more experienced deputy goalkeeper.

In defence, the full-back areas certainly aren’t an issue with two strong options on either side, but Josh Knight will need replacing.

Long-serving Blackburn man Corry Evans and 27-year-old Deji Oshilaja are perhaps ambitious to go for but would be able to step into the shoes of the Players’ Player of the Year.

A more affordable move may come in the form of ex-Shrewsbury centre-back RoShaun Williams, but as we know, any additions will have to fit into the tight-knit dressing room at Adams Park so may initially arrive on trial at the start of pre-season.

Alex Pattison’s departure this week, combined with the increased coaching responsibilities of Matt Bloomfield, mean there may be room for a couple of new faces in the centre of midfield.

Wycombe do have plenty of quality in that area, with Anis Mehmeti’s stock continuing to rise and David Wheeler and Garath McCleary also impressing in a deeper role towards the end of the season.

Shaun Williams could be a player to go for with his wealth of experience, while Wanderers have already been linked with Derby starlet Max Bird.

Anything like the quality of Bird would be an incredible coup for Wycombe.

Dependant on the formation that Ainsworth employs, a winger may also be required to replace Onyedinma, potentially someone who is also capable as a wing-back.

Darius Charles has also left the club

Scott Kashket, Uche Ikpeazu and Alex Samuel are the current striking options and you feel that could be an area where a young loanee from a Premier League club comes in.

Admiral Muskwe may yet return to Buckinghamshire, while Brentford B Player of the Year Aaron Pressley could also be a potential signing.
