Harry Chapman looks increasingly likely to leave Blackburn Rovers this summer, according to the Lancashire Telegraph.
The 23-year-old faces an uncertain future at the club with his contract at Ewood Park due to expire in the coming weeks.
Chapman moved to Blackburn on a permanent basis back in 2019 after coming through the ranks with Middlesbrough and establishing himself as one of the club’s top talents.
But since moving to Rovers things have gone far from smoothly.
In that time, Chapman has made just 32 appearances for the club after struggling with injury and a lack of form that has seen regular first team opportunities hard to come by.
In search of first team football, the winger dropped down to League One with Shrewsbury Town where he really impressed in the second half of the season, scoring seven goals and creating three more in 23 appearances for the club.
With the campaign now over Blackburn Rovers have signaled their intent by offering Chapman a new contract at the club, however the Lancashire Telegraph are claiming that he’s likely to move on in search of regular first team football.
It’s claimed that Shrewsbury are keen on a move for the winger, while a number of other League One clubs could also be keen.
Did these 19 things happen at Blackburn Rovers in 2020/21?
I think a move away is probably best for Harry Chapman.
The winger is a huge talent but with regular first team opportunities highly unlikely at Blackburn Rovers it seems silly for him to stay put.
He showed with Shrewsbury Town exactly what he has to offer and so if he has the chance to move back to the League One club it could be the perfect way to kickstart his career.
Chapman has too much talent to be rotting in the reserves and so it’s essential that he makes the right call this summer.
