Sheffield Wednesday: Owls keen on signing Alex Mighten

Sheffield Wednesday: Owls keen on signing Alex Mighten -League One News

Sheffield Wednesday are interested in making a move for Nottingham Forest winger Alex Mighten this summer, journalist Alex Miller has claimed.

The Lowdown: Mighton out of favour at Forest

The 20-year-old has found himself down the pecking order at Forest so far this season, with Steve Cooper making endless signings to help aid their Premier League survival hopes.

Mighten has only featured for seven minutes in the Reds’ opening three games and it looks increasingly likely that he will be allowed to leave on loan in the next week or so.

This is where Wednesday come into the picture.

The Latest: Sheff Wed eye up move

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, The Sheffield Star‘s Miller claimed that Mighten is on Wednesday’s radar, with a loan move looking possible:

“Understand Sheffield Wednesday are admirers of rapid Nottingham Forest winger Alex Mighten. Owls exploring possible deal, looks likely to leave #NFFC on loan but there is interest from elsewhere.”

WHO IS THE PLAYER?

The Verdict: Much-needed width

Darren Moore has strengthened all over the pitch this summer but there is still arguably a lack of quality in wide attacking areas, even with the signing of Mallik Wilks confirmed earlier this week.

Will Sheff Wed be promoted in 2022/23?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Forest Director of Professional Development Gary Brazil has hailed Mighten as an ‘elite footballer’ who is also ‘brave, exciting, self-confident’ and ‘single-minded’, highlighting the kind of impact he could have at Hillsborough, in what is a weaker part of the pitch for them.

At 20, he is still a raw talent but his pace and quality out wide could help give the Owls an extra attacking dimension, while the addition of the Englishman could also improve squad depth.
