Opinion: Lincoln City should set sights on Swansea City outcast
Football League World
Lincoln City perhaps possessed the most frightening attacking line up in League One last time out, with Anthony Scully, Morgan Rogers, Callum Morton, Jorge Grant and Brennan Johnson, all offering attacking threat for the Imps.
With four out of the five now plying their trade in the Championship, it is a great reminder of the talent they possessed in attacking positions.
It is now just Antony Scully who remains at the LNER Stadium, although, he could follow suit this month and secure a move to England’s second-tier.
The 22-year-old has attracted the interest of the Championship, chipping in with 12 goals and four assists already this season, whilst his performances perhaps went under the radar amidst the standard of attackers at the club during last term.
Quiz: Did any of these 25 ex-Swansea City players ever get a red card during their time at the club?

Lincoln have struggled to match the heights of last season, and understandably so, however, they have enjoyed a positive start to the new year.
Developing a good relationship with Swansea City already, by agreeing loan deals for Liam Cullen and Morgan Whittaker, the Imps could try and strike a permanent agreement for Yan Dhanda.
Dhanda has struggled to pave his way for regular contention at the Swansea.com Stadium, and whilst Jamie Paterson’s recent absence could have helped the 23-year-old back into the fray, he is still struggling to make matchday squads.
Dhanda’s future does look away from South Wales at this point, with Russell Martin confirming to Wales Online that a permanent move could be sanctioned this month.
The young attacking midfielder needs minutes to help him progress and boost his confidence amidst his recent struggles for game time.
A technically gifted footballer, Dhanda also has the vision and cutting edge to match, whilst he has shown that he has the desire and grit to work hard off the ball.
Primarily operating centrally, Dhanda has also been deployed on both flanks, with this sense of versatility crucial in the modern game.
It would appear that a League One move could help his career progress at this stage of his young career.
He is clearly a talented individual but his progression has just halted in recent months.
