West Ham now ready to sign Josh Brownhill after 18 month scouting mission

West Ham United reportedly want to sign Burnley midfield ace Josh Brownhill in the summer transfer window.

That’s according to a report from 90 Min who claim that West Ham are now ready to swoop in for Brownhill after monitoring him for the past 18 months.

Hammers boss David Moyes was actually linked with a move to bring the 26-year-old to the London Stadium last summer (Eurosport).

Central midfield is certainly an area where Moyes needs to strengthen in the summer transfer window.

Mark Noble is set to retire at the end of the season whilst Alex Kral will almost certainly be sent back to Spartak Moscow after an underwhelming loan spell in East London.

And it seems as though Moyes has a plan to reinforce his engine room…

West Ham now ready to move for Josh Brownhill

90 Min reckon that the 26-year-old has been on the Hammers’ radar for the past 18 months.

And now Moyes is allegedly ready to pull the trigger.

Brownhill would be a very useful addition to Moyes’s squad. He is a very combative central midfielder and is a tenacious tackler with an uncanny knack for intercepting the ball and interrupting the opposition’s play.

The former Bristol City ace had 69 interceptions in 33 Premier League games for Burnley last season.

He was second on the list behind Southampton’s centre-back Jan Bednarek. This year he’s third on the list with 61 (Premier League).

Brownhill has also bagged two goals and three assists in 31 Premier League games for Burnley so far this season (Transfermarkt).

The English midfielder is an extremely hard-worker and that is what probably appeals most to the Hammers and Moyes.

Interestingly, Brownhill actually rejected a move to West Ham back in 2020 (BBC). And it now seems like he’s set to go full circle.

Burnley could demand around £15 million for the midfielder according to a report from TEAMtalk. That sounds like decent value to us. And if Moyes brings Josh Brownhill to West Ham in the summer, we would be more than happy.
