Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill is on the radar of several Premier League clubs ahead of the January transfer window, according to Bristol Live journalist Gregor MacGregor.
Brownhill has been an ever-present figure during his side’s Championship efforts so far this term, and the 23-year-old has played a key role in helping the Robins on their ten-game unbeaten run.
Lee Johnson’s side are currently sitting sixth in the table following a solid start to the campaign which has seen them win five of their opening 11 matches, while their only defeat came against Leeds on the opening weekend.
Brownhill is now into his third straight season as a regular in the Robins’ side, with the Manchester United academy product having clearly settled at Ashton Gate following other spells at Preston and Barnsley since leaving Old Trafford.
It now appears that a number of clubs have started to take notice of Brownhill’s impressive form for the south-west club as the 23-year-old is now on the radar for several top-flight sides.
However, MacGregor has noted that there has been no concrete interest in the midfielder as of yet, while the reporter also added that a top-tier side have been watching one of Bristol City’s U23 players recently.
It should not come as any surprise that Premier League clubs are showing an interest in Brownhill as the midfielder has been delivering consistently impressive performances for around three years now.
The fact Bristol City are performing so well in the Championship means other clubs are bound to take more notice of their players, and it seems this has been the case for Brownhill who had perhaps gone under the radar previously.
However, I don’t think Robins fans should feel too concerned about Brownhill leaving the club anytime soon. He will surely want to at least see out the season with his current side as they mount a promotion bid this term.
