According to an exclusive report by TEAMtalk, West Ham United are taking a ‘keen interest‘ in Burnley star Josh Brownhill ahead of the summer window and have scouted him in recent months – prompting many Hammers to buzz as their club allegedly eye the midfield maestro.
Brownhill, who has been a regular under Sean Dyche this term, starting 22 league games for the Clarets (WhoScored), has adapted ‘very well‘ to the top flight since signing from Bristol City in January 2020 for £9 million (BBC).
As a result, the Hammers are reportedly taking a ‘keen interest’ in the Englishman alongside a plethora of Premier League sides ahead of the summer transfer market – with West Ham joining Wolves, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa among the outfits keeping tabs.
Indeed, TEAMtalk claim that the Irons have scouted him in recent months – with Burnley ‘facing a battle‘ to keep hold of Brownhill after a noteworthy campaign.
Flocking to this news, many West Ham fans buzzed at the thought of signing Brownhill and dropped their takes on social media – with one supporter even saying he would be ‘perfect‘ for David Moyes.
