Gillingham boss Justin Edinburgh is hoping his patience in the transfer market pays off.
The Gills manager believes there are big names to be had and he’s willing to bide his time to see if something special arises.
“I think we need to be patient and make sure we get the right player and we get that player at the right value,” said Edinburgh.
“We have a lot of targets but I think there will be some real top players who become available for this level.
“As managers and as staff, we want to have our squad nailed down as quickly as possible. But I think you have to be patient and brave to maybe capture one or two signings that people think, ‘wow, that’s out of the blue’.”
The international campaign ended last week and the late finale to the season means Premier League clubs are only now assessing who they want to keep for the new campaign.
Edinburgh added: “Premier League clubs will start to make their moves and it will have a knock-on effect to the Championship. Those people who thought they might be going to the Championship might have to revaluate. There could be opportunities for League 1 clubs to pounce.”
