West Ham still interested in Brownhill


West Ham United are still interested in signing Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill, according to journalist Graeme Bailey.

Brownhill has been a standout performer for Burnley this season, contributing four goals and three assists in 32 appearances across all competitions. He boasts an impressive all-around game, averaging 1.8 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 1.3 clearances, 0.9 shots, and 1.0 key passes per game in the Premier League. His distribution is also noteworthy, with an 80.5% pass success rate (stats via whoscored).

Brownhill’s current contract at Burnley expires at the end of the season, making him a potential free transfer target for West Ham. This adds significant appeal, especially considering his strong performances.

West Ham views Brownhill as a valuable addition to bolster their midfield options.  His versatility, with the ability to play box-to-box, as a number ten, or even defensively, makes him a desirable target.

West Ham faces competition from Crystal Palace and Brentford in the race to sign Brownhill. All three clubs recognise the potential he brings and will likely vie for his signature in the upcoming transfer window.

At 28, Brownhill is entering his prime and his expiring contract presents a cost-effective opportunity for West Ham. His experience and skillset could significantly enhance West Ham’s midfield, making him a player worth pursuing.

    Do you see Aston Villa or Newcastle signing Brownhil? No…… he’s not good enough for West Ham either.
