It’s been a quiet summer so far in terms of incomings at Adams Park, but keeping hold of some of the Chairboys’ key players could arguably be more important than any additions.

Youngster Anis Mehmeti was a real breakout star of the 2020/21 season, and his performances would’ve had bigger clubs interested, but thankfully for Wycombe fans, the Albanian’s contract was extended at the end of the campaign.

Despite most of the Chairboys squad looking secure at Adams Park for the immediate future, star striker Uche Ikpeazu has been linked with a move to the likes of Cardiff and Nottingham Forest in recent weeks.

This came as something of a surprise, but it really shouldn’t have been after the Ugandan recovered from an injury-affected start to the season to become one of the Chairboys’ key players.

His hold-up play and strength were admirable, and he also showed class in front of goal with some excellent footwork and a few majestic finishes.

With Fred Onyedinma having been sold earlier in the window, the last thing Wycombe need is to lose another important part of the team.

Should a significant fee be received for the frontman, Gareth Ainsworth would have sufficient cash from the two deals combined to bring in some exciting players.

Despite that, it’s still crucial to keep Ikpeazu in south Bucks, where he was one of the key figures in an excellent end to the season that nearly ended in a great escape.

After his first four strikes in blue all came in defeat, Ikpeazu was part of a fairytale win against Bristol City with a back-post header, before his wonderful strike from 25 yards saw off a strong Bournemouth side in the final home game.

If the 26-year-old can produce moments like that in the Championship, he could certainly scare some defences in League One, which is one of the reasons why it’s so crucial to keep him at Adams Park.

The aforementioned new deal for Mehmeti came at the same time as confirmation that club legend Adebayo Akinfenwa was still in talks over a contract extension.

There’s still no news either way on that, and with the players’ return to training only a week away, it’s unusual for a player’s future to still be up in the air.

However, Akinfenwa is no normal player and he understandably may need some extra time to come to a decision due to his various media commitments.

At the age of 39, no one is expecting him to play loads of football for the Chairboys next season, but after the service he’s given to the club, it would be nice if he stayed for one more season.

He’d still get some minutes, as he did in the Championship, but you feel Akinfenwa’s main role would be to help nurture the younger players in the squad if he did sign a new deal.

It would also be great for the Chairboys’ record Football League goalscorer to receive a proper send-off from the fans after his goals went a long way to getting the club where they are today.

The first new signings of the summer will surely start to arrive soon, but the more important question may be whether these two key strikers are still at Wycombe come August.
