Florian Kamberi didn’t exactly set the world on fire last season with Hibs. He endured a frustrating campaign, but still managed to be the Hibees’ joint-top scorer with 12 goals.
Obviously if a sizeable offer comes in then Hibs have something to think about. However, if that doesn’t happen, the Hibees must retain their Swiss frontman, at least for now.
He had a disappointing 2018/19 campaign, but that doesn’t mean the club should look to cash in.
Scott Allan’s arrival may help Kamberi
In the second half of last season Kamberi was thrown out to the left flank. This limited his chances of finding the net, often used as an inside forward to help Marc McNulty through the middle.
How do you get the forward onto top form? Play him through the middle and offer him plenty of support. When he was deployed through the middle earlier this season, Hibs were struggling. There was a lack of creativity in the side.
Kamberi wasn’t playing brilliantly either, but he wasn’t getting service. The arrival of Scott Allan could really help him. Having a creative force like Allan behind him may see him get the ball in the right areas more often.
The Hibs-bound midfielder could really help Kamberi. If they two can link up well, that could be a feared number duo next year. Allan would be the provider and Kamberi would be the finisher we all know he can be.
Unless it is a very good offer, the Easter Road club should reject any advances for Kamberi. If you give him the first six months to perform, he could get back to the level he was playing at in the 2017/18 camapaign.
If he plays similarly or worse than he has this season during the early stages of next season, Hibs may well assess their options in January. For now though, Kamberi has to stay in Leith.
