Bez Lubala has responded to links regarding a January move to Sheffield Wednesday.
According to TeamTalk, the Yorkshire side are plotting a move for the League Two striker after an impressive start to the new season.
Lubala has scored eight times in 21 appearances since joining Crawley in the summer, leading to reported suitors higher up the food chain.
The young winger played under Owls’ boss Garry Monk during his time at Birmingham City, with Monk handing the youngster his first team debut for the Blues.
Lubala left Birmingham City over the summer in favour of a move to the League Two side, and speaking to Crawley Town’s ‘A Bit of Bully’ podcast, he said that he is taking any speculation with a pinch of salt.
Lubala said: “If you’re doing well, people are going to talk, you’re going to get rumours and stuff.
“My main focus is just focusing on what we’ve got at Crawley, what we’re trying to do – the objective.
Should Sheffield Wednesday make a move for Bez Lubala?
“I’m just focusing on my targets. And the better the team does, the better I’m going to do. And I’m not really getting carried away with any of that stuff at the moment.
“That’s the main focus – the team getting up the table. And the individuals will shine through that, really.”
Sheffield Wednesday have made a decent start to the Championship season, but there’s always room for improvement.
Bez Lubala is a player of incredible talent, and one who I know has left Birmingham City fans feeling that he could be ‘the one who got away’.
While he’s made a strong start to life in League Two, it’s worth remembering that a move to the Championship is a huge step and perhaps the 21-year-old would be better served staying with Crawley for the rest of the season, before making any move next summer.
