West Ham target Josh Brownhill set to be available for discount after Burnley relegation
West Ham target and Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill’s price could have reportedly fallen over the last few days.
According to 90Min, the Clarets’ relegation means that the English midfielder’s valuation may have dropped, opening the door for a cut-price move.
The Hammers are looking to replace Mark Noble and have eyed the 26-year-old as a suitable replacement.
Burnley’s relegation should not form false opinions about Brownhill as a player.
The Englishman was one of the few good things in what was a wretched season for the Turf Moor outfit.
Despite being a deep-lying midfielder, he often found himself getting involved in the attacking moves and seldom even found the back of the net.
Rather than being a first-choice in the Championship, he would not mind being a rotation option at the London Stadium in the Premier League.
West Ham are set to play in Europe next season too so he’ll get his first taste of European football and that would be extremely hard to turn down.
He may not be the kind of signing that gets fans overly excited but he certainly will be an efficient one and David Moyes would surely manage to get the best out of him at the club.
