The Dragons, who opened their friendly programme with a 1-1 draw against Coventry City at the Racecourse on Saturday, have agreed terms with Liverpool to take highly-rated Bouzanis on loan, but there are a few details still to be ironed out.
Speaking after Saturday’s match, Wrexham manager Dean Saunders said he hoped Bouzanis would be one of a number of new faces arriving this week.
“We’ve agreed for Dean to come from Liverpool and we’re just waiting for everything to be finalised and hopefully he’ll be able to play on Monday,” he said. “I’ll be trying to get some players in next week, probably three or four more, so the team that started today won’t be the team that starts the first game of the season unless they make me pick them.”
Striker Andy Mangan, who topped the Blue Square Premier scoring chart last season, remains a Dragons target, but with the player yet to face a disciplinary hearing over betting irregularities, the boss hinted at other options to provide competition for first choice front men Gareth Taylor and Marc Williams.
“I’m sure everyone who was at the game will have seen after five minutes that Gareth can play football and that he’s got a brain,” added Saunders. “He is a proper target man and the two front men are dangerous.
“But we’ll get another striker in that’s a bit different to those two so that we are prepared for the season. I don’t know what’s happening with Mangan, but we can’t wait too long.”
