Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly interested in signing former Arsenal youngster Jayden Onen during the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Sheff Wed eye up signings
Darren Moore will be hoping to have a productive few months in the transfer market, as he looks to make his mark at Hillsborough and build a squad capable of bouncing back immediately after relegation.
The Owls will need a mixture of flair players and those with experience in League One, so if they are to secure promotion back to the Championship, a number of new signings will likely be required.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
The Latest: Onen linked with move
According to the Sheffield Star, Wednesday are keen on signing Onen, who was released by Reading earlier this month and is currently without a club.
The 20-year-old midfielder only managed one Championship appearance last season, but was actually once on Arsenal’s books, prior to joining Crystal Palace in 2017.
Doncaster Rovers and Wycombe Wanderers are also believed to be interested in signing Onen, as are a number of unnamed Championship clubs.
The Verdict: Another interesting addition?
Moore seems to be hellbent on bringing youth into his squad – something that is much-needed, considering the main nucleus of Owls players have grown past their primes together in the past four or five years, such as Sam Hutchinson and Barry Bannan.
While Onen remains unproven as a first-team player, he scored eight goals in 20 appearances for Reading’s Under-23s, highlighting his ability in the final third.
He could offer more guile than the current midfield options and potentially dovetail with new signing Dennis Adeniran in the middle of the park.
