Despite Sheffield Wednesday’s growing struggles this season, they still have a number of promising players at their disposal.
One of their main hopes of achieving anything this campaign is midfielder Adam Reach. The left-sided midfielder has managed four goals and two assists in 15 appearances for The Owls this term which is impressive. In a team that has seen a lot of chopping and changing, to feature in almost every game shows that he is clearly held in high regard by manager Jos Luhukay.
At 25 years of age, Reach (valued at £3.6m on Transfermarkt.co.uk) has a lot of promise, and will surely be attracting interest from some Premier League clubs. Already he has been linked with Wolves over a January move, and this seems very much plausible.
The most impressive thing about the midfielder is that his goals have come against some of the biggest teams in the league; against Leeds and Middlesbrough, as well as West Brom when they were the top of the table. He is clearly a man that rises to the occasion, and that will only make him more attractive to clubs.
This season has already seen the emergence of James Maddison amongst England’s elite after joining Leicester from Norwich in the summer, and Reach could well be the next player to follow in his footsteps. The Foxes’ midfielder has clearly shown that players from the Championship can seriously impress in the Premier League, and this will fill a lot of players in the division with hope.
The Owls currently sit in 17th place in the Championship, and their form has certainly not been the greatest. If the club are going to recover and climb back up the table, Reach will be crucial to this, and if he manages this, it will do his prospects of moving to a bigger club no harm.
