Wolves: Wanderers eyeing Lewis O’Brien swoop

Wolves: Wanderers eyeing Lewis O’Brien swoop -Premier League News

Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the clubs interested in signing Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien, according to a report from TEAMtalk

The lowdown: Ruben Neves successor?

The 23-year-old central midfielder has amassed 174 career club appearances across spells at Huddersfield and a loan stint at Barnsley and could be ready for a step up to the Premier League.

Such a step could be forthcoming in one-way shape or form as the Yorkshire club embark on a Championship play-off semi-final clash with Luton Town for a shot at promotion.

However, with talismanic Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves heavily linked with a move out of Molineux this summer, Bruno Lage may already have pinpointed a possible successor…

The latest: Wolves ‘keen’

As per the report from TEAMtalk, Wolves, Leeds United, Crystal Palace, Burnley, Brighton and Southampton are all ‘keen’ on O’Brien.

It’s claimed that the Midlands outfit could land the man described as an ‘exceptional player’ by Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan owing to his supreme versatility by triggering a £12million release clause.

Furthermore, the report states that the future of O’Brien ‘could depend’ on the ongoing promotion bid as it is ‘highly unlikely’ the Englishman stays at the club should they fall short.

Who scored Wolves' first Premier League goal of the season, barring own goals?

The verdict: Bargain fee

Albeit unproven at the Premier League level, O’Brien has forged a stellar second-tier career and this season earned a superb 7.00 average Sofascore rating whilst completing 2.0 successful dribbles, winning 7.5 of his duels and making 2.2 tackles on average per game – evidence of a well-rounded overall midfield package.

Under contract until 2025 (Transfermarkt), the opportunity to sign the workmanlike midfielder for the mooted £12million release clause is one the Wolves hierarchy shouldn’t pass up.

What position will Wolves finish in the Premier League this season?

Whether or not Lage and co can persuade Neves to stay at Molineux beyond this summer remains to be seen, however, the club would be wise to make a move for O’Brien either as a provision or even as a future successor to Joao Moutinho.
