IT could be a totally different transfer window to one experienced by a Wrexham manager in recent times.

Strengthening the squad by bringing in free agents or making loan signings is the kind of wheeling and dealing that Reds' bosses have been accustomed to during the non-league years.

Although players like Bobby Grant have arrived at The Racecourse for an undisclosed fee, it's not as if managers have been given licence to splash the cash. Until now.

Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are set to complete their takeover of the club this month when Dean Keates will be looking to make new signings to give the promotion challenge a boost.

The actors have vowed to invest £2million immediately when they become owners and while not all that money will be spent on the first team budget, Keates could have a nice little war chest at his disposal.

Here's five players that would be a good fit for Wrexham.

1. Every successful team has a proven scorer and Wrexham haven't had a 20-goal a season striker since Louis Moult.

If you can score goals in League Two, you can find the net in the National League so Paul Mullin's your man.

A good age at 26, Mullin joined Cambridge United on a permanent deal in the summer and he has been on fire this season, scoring 18 goals in 21 league appearances, and he is out of contract in the summer.

2. If you are looking for a midfield presence, and someone who can compliment the likes of Jay Harris and Luke Young, one player springs to mind.

It was a blow when Brad Walker followed Sam Ricketts to Shrewsbury Town and although he was loaned back to Wrexham, injury cut short his season and the Reds' title challenge fell away.

Although he is only 24, Walker is experienced and his versatility means he can be effective in both boxes.

3. I'm going to go for someone who really impressed me against Wrexham this season - and everyone loves a tricky winger with an eye for goal.

Ben Whitfield caused the Reds' defence all sorts of problems and he also scored when leaders Torquay triumphed 3-1 at Plainmoor in early December.

Named as Torquay's Player of the Year for 2019-20, the 24-year-old has helped take the Gulls to the top of the league and would definitely excite supporters.

4. If a player is willing to drop down to the fifth tier and money is no issue, then Luke Jephcott would be a fantastic addition.

Rising star Jephcott has scored 14 goals in all competitions for Plymouth this season with 12 of those strikes coming in League One, making him the joint top scorer in the division.

That means Aberystwyth-born Jephcott, still only 20, has scored more goals than any other Welsh player in the top four tiers.

5. There's no harm in taking a punt on a talent from a lower level. After all, it worked with Lee Trundle!

Leamington's attacking midfielder Sam Osborne scooped two Young Player of the Season awards in a row for Notts County but he turned down the offer of a new contract in the summer as he wanted first team football.

Osborne should still be playing at this level but the 21-year-old has done the job for Leamington, who beat Wrexham in their recent FA Trophy tie, scoring nine goals in 14 league outings and winning the National League North Player of the Month award for November.
