Humphrey Ker, the executive director of Wrexham, has announced the club’s two dream additions.

After defeating Forest Green Rovers earlier in the month, the Red Dragons secured back-to-back promotions.

Phil Parkinson’s team won 6-0 thanks to goals from Jack Marriott, Elliot Lee, Paul Mullin, Ryan Barnett, and an own goal from Ryan Inniss.

As they get preparing for life in League One, Wrexham has already been connected to a number of different players ahead of the summer transfer window.

Wrexham executive director Ker was asked who his ideal addition for the team would be while speaking exclusively to SPORTbible.

“So, when this question has come up in the past, I’ve frequently mentioned Neco Williams as one, you know, who’s from the area, he’s a Premier League caliber right back, and he plays for Wales,” the speaker stated. We will know we’ve progressed to a point when we are signing guys like that.

“In terms of who’s one of my favourite players and who would I love to see playing in a Wrexham shirt? At present, I’ve got a real soft spot for Wataru Endo. Who is kind of a perfect encapsulation of the fury in the summer when Liverpool missed out on Caicedo and Lavia and it was all doom and gloom and disaster.

“And then they sign Wataru Endo and it was like ‘well, who’s this guy? I’ve never heard of him’ he was only 16 million quid, what are they playing at? And then he’s been one of the signings of the season.”

Ker added: “I think there’s a good lesson there for all of us in terms of, you know, the glitz and the glamour and the big price tags and ‘what are Liverpool doing not spending 100 million on a central midfielder’.

“It’s like, you don’t need to spend 100 million, you need to spend your money wisely, you’ve got to find and identify the best players. I don’t know Wataru Endo from Adam but you can see he’s got fantastic character. He’s got a fantastic work ethic, you see in the interactions, the pictures and the other players, they clearly all really like him and he’s done an unbelievable job there. So yeah, if money is no object and the player does not particularly mind about moving to North Wales. I’m a big fan of his.”

Manager Jurgen Klopp, who stated back in February that “I’m pretty sure Wataru will sign another long-term contract at Liverpool just because he might be 30 or 31 on his passport but he’s not,” has called Endo a machine since the player joined the team in the summer. He is an apparatus. In terms of football, he is outstanding. He has an excellent defensive mind. He grants us great freedom in many areas. Yes, excellent development. incredibly beneficial, extremely beneficial.
