Wolves transfer news: Wanderers keen on Josh Brownhill

Wolves have again been linked with a move for Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill.

According to 90min, Wanderers are one of a few teams monitoring the situation of the 26-year-old, who is facing the prospect of relegation with the Clarets.

Brownhill has been at Turf Moor since the summer of 2020, joining from Championship outfit Bristol City.

The star has 81 appearances so far for the club, with 35 of those coming this season.

Brownhill has carved out a reputation for being a tenacious and industrious midfielder in Burnley’s engine room.

Burnley would like to keep hold of their tough-tackling star, but accept relegation could make that difficult.

90min say West Ham United are actually in pole position to sign Brownhill at the moment. They have been linked for a while, and Mark Noble is leaving at the end of the season and the Hammers will need a replacement.

They have reportedly been monitoring him for the best part of 18 months.

But Wolves have also been linked with the player previously. TEAMtalk reported in March 2021 that Wolves had interest in him.

It will be interesting to see if Wolves do try and make a play for Brownhill.

Wolves really need to add a new central midfielder to their ranks this summer, having had the same three options for the past few campaigns now.

Any of those three could depart this summer – but Ruben Neves is perhaps the most likely, as much as almost every Wolves fan hopes he stays.

Josh Brownhill would make a decent addition for Wolves’ squad

While such a transfer would be lacking in glamour, Wolves signing a player like Brownhill would be a decent move.

He’s had a couple of seasons in the Premier League now, and has been one of Burnley’s better performers since his arrival there.

A recent feature from Lancashire Live stated that he has been having ‘something of a coming of age’ campaign. And that he has caught the eye particularly in the second-half of the season.

He does not operate like Neves and Moutinho. Brownhill is a player who brings energy and industry, and it’s important to have such types in a squad.

Lage places huge emphasis on players working hard out of possession and pressing.

He might well love to have a player like Brownhill in his ranks.
