Wolves fans react to Josh Brownhill links

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reported to be scouting Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill.

Ruben Neves has performed well in 2021, but Joao Moutinho has been not been at his vintage best, and Leander Dendoncker has struggled.

Some have argued that Neves and Moutinho are a little too similar, with both being technicians that players can sometimes run rings around.

On social media, there were some Wolves fans against a potential deal for £40,000-a-week star Brownhill (Spotrac), but plenty of others recognise him as a pretty good player:
