West Ham United: Irons set to step up their interest in Josh Brownhill

West Ham United: Irons set to step up their interest in Josh Brownhill -Premier League News

West Ham United are set to step up their interest in midfielder Josh Brownhill after Burnley were relegated from the Premier League, reports 90min journalist Toby Cudworth.

The Lowdown: Lack of depth

The Hammers are looking to add depth to David Moyes’ squad this summer after their sensational Europa League run visibly strained the players’ fitness, with a number of injuries occurring along the way.

With club legend Mark Noble having retired at the end of the season and Alex Kral seemingly not part of Moyes’ plans whatsoever, the Irons will surely be looking to bring in an extra midfielder to fill the deficit.

The Latest: Irons interested in Brownhill

90min journalist Toby Cudworth has revealed that West Ham are now ready to enter the market for Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill, interest which has previously been spoken about in the press.

Taking to Twitter, Cudworth claimed: “Anticipate Josh Brownhill interest to step up too after Burnley’s relegation.”

In the attached article, it is reported that the 26-year-old should be available for a reasonably cheap price after Burnley’s relegation – Transfermarkt value him at just £6.3m.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

The Verdict: Good signing

Former Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie has spoken of his admiration for Brownhill, saying that he’s “a fabulous player” who reminds him of John McGinn.

Having played 35 games in the Premier League this season, and considering two of the three he missed were due to Covid-19, the midfielder’s durability would come as a huge bonus to Moyes, especially with another European campaign to embark upon next term.

In fact, the Englishman has missed just seven games through injury in his entire Burnley career, and if West Ham can get the deal over the line for a cut-price this will be a shrewd singing for the east London club, providing depth in a key area and keeping plenty of funds left for other positions.
