‘An asset for any team in the Championship’ – Brentford linked with midfielder: Opinion



Wigan Athletic captain Sam Morsy has emerged as a potential target for Championship rivals Brentford, it has been reported.

A no nonsense centre midfielder, Morsy captained The Latics to the League One title last season and Championship safety in the current campaign, with his performances in the third tier earning him a call up to Egypt’s World Cup squad last summer, where came on as a 50th minute substitute during a 1-0 group stage defeat to Uruguay.

Those performances have apparently attracted interest from elsewhere in the Championship, with West London Sport reporting that Brentford have joined Sheffield Wednesday in taking an interest in Morsy.

With the 27-year-old still having two years left on his contract with Wigan, The Latics are in no urgent need to sell the midfielder, who has made 120 appearances and scored six goals in all competitions since joining from Chesterfield in January 2016.

But would Morsy be a good signing for Brentford?

We asked some of our Football League World writers for their opinion.

Toby Wilding

“This would be a smart move for Brentford.

“They will need to strengthen if they are to progress from a mid table side to genuine play-off contenders next season, and Morsy would help them do that.

“The midfielder could be crucial in controlling games from the centre of the park Brentford, and could provide a vital contribution at times when The Bees need to grind out results throughout the course of the season.”

Jacob Potter

“This would be a very good signing.

“I’m not sure how much longer Romaine Sawyers will remain with the Bees, and they aare making a smart move in adding depth early into the transfer window.

“Morsy is a useful player to have in the squad and would be a smart bit of business as they’ll hardly break the bank to sign him.”

George Brooks

“Morsy would be an excellent signing for Brentford.

“He’s been an important player for Wigan over the past few seasons, in both League One and the Championship.

“He is a real leader on the pitch and isn’t afraid to get stuck in – he’d be an asset for any team in the Championship.”
