Wolves could reportedly make a move in the January transfer window to try and sign Josh Brownhill.
The Lowdown: Summer interest
Towards the end of the summer transfer window, Bruno Lage’s side were reportedly interested in a move for Brownhill, but a deal never materialised in the end.
They let go of Morgan Gibbs-White and Leander Dendoncker to Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa respectively, and so were left a little light in the central midfield area despite the signing of Matheus Nunes.
The Latest: January move?
As per Football League World, the Midlands club remain interested in signing Brownhill, and could make a move for him in January.
They are currently monitoring his situation at Burnley, and may feel as if they could persuade him to move back to the Premier League following the Clarets’ relegation to the Championship.
The Verdict: Smart signing
Brownhill would certainly be a smart signing by the Old Gold, especially if they can persuade him to move midway through the season.
Hailed as an ‘energetic’ and ‘fabulous’ player by former top-flight midfielder Lee Hendrie, the Englishman of course boasts plenty of Premier League experience, and he is now starting to add more goals and assists to his game under a new manager in Vincent Kompany.
Brownhill has an impressive four goals and two assists in the Championship from the middle of the park so far this term (Transfermarkt), and given the Wanderers’ lack of goals in the top flight this campaign, the 26-year-old could be a handy weapon to have in their armoury.
