Wolves transfer news: Wanderers weighing up Lewis O'Brien January bid

Wolves are reportedly considering making a January bid for Lewis O’Brien.

According to TEAMtalk yesterday, Wolves are one of five clubs on the tail of the Huddersfield Town midfielder.

O’Brien has really been making a name for himself in recent times.

He was apparently the subject of several offers during the last window.

But none were deemed suitable enough by the Terriers, who value him at around £15 million. Leeds United supposedly got closest to that valuation with a £13 million offer.

The Whites are credited with interest in the player, with the January transfer window now officially open.

Also keen according to the report are Newcastle United, Burnley, Norwich and Wolves.

O’Brien, 23, has made 25 appearances across all competitions so far this season, scoring two goals and providing one assist.

It remains to be seen if Wolves come in with an official bid.

Central midfield is an area that many fans hope the club will move to improve this month.

Renato Sanches is the man most seem to want to come in.

Wolves should aim higher

O’Brien is a talented player who is probably ready to step up.

But he perhaps isn’t a name that too many will be thrilled about.

If Wolves are to kick on from what has been a pretty good start, then players of higher quality will be needed.

O’Brien could be a good addition in time, but the Premier League is a big step up from the Championship.

Maybe this is one to look at in the summer if he is still with the West Yorkshire-based outfit.
