The 28-year-old is currently a free agent after terminating his contract with Turkish Super Lig outfit, Konyaspor, and the Owls are believed to have had conversations regarding the potential of bringing him on board at Hillsborough.

Ikpeazu enjoyed a good spell at Adams Park under Gareth Ainsworth during their time in the Championship in 2020/21, and played with current Chairboys boss, Matt Bloomfield, before the big striker was snapped up by Neil Warnock at Boro.

 

The likes of Huddersfield Town and Ainsworth’s Queens Park Rangers were also linked with a move for the striker as teams across the English Football League look to bolster their ranks, but it’s now looking increasingly likely that Ikpeazu will be heading back to Buckinghamshire.

 

Wycombe have had a mixed start to the 2023/24 season so far, winning two, losing two and drawing one – though they’ll be hoping that if Ikpeazu does join then he can start to replicate some of the form that made him a popular figure at the club a few years ago.
