Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly in the mix to sign Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill.

TEAMtalk have claimed the club have scouted the 25-year-old in recent months.

The Clarets are supposedly facing a real battle to keep hold of Brownhill, who has only been with the club since January 2020.

He joined from Championship side Bristol City, and has made a real impression at Turf Moor.

So far for the club, he’s made 36 first-team appearances, and currently sits second for interceptions made in the Premier League in 2020/21 (55), behind Southampton’s Jan Bednarek (58) and ahead of Wolves’ Ruben Neves (52).

Wolves are not the only side keen on Brownhill – TEAMtalk say West Ham United, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are also keen.

Brownhill likely wouldn’t come too cheap given he’s only been with Burnley since 2020 and has a contract until the summer of 2024.

He cost the Clarets a reported £9 million (BBC Sport) and they would undoubtedly hope to sell for much more if they were to offload him as early as this summer.

Brownhill would be solid squad addition

Brownhill has definitely caught the eye for Burnley and looks a capable Premier League player.

He is by no means flashy, but has bags of energy and presses well.

He’s industrious, aggressive and versatile and could potentially allow Wolves’ midfield to become more competitive.
