Brentford

Premier League interest continues to build in £15m-rated Championship duo

Brentford pair Chris Mepham and Ollie Watkins are both continuing to be monitored by Premier League side Bournemouth.

According to Get West London, via a report in the People, the Cherries are keen on signing the duo in a deal which could be worth in excess of £15m if Brentford get their valuations of each player.

Both Watkins and Mepham have been in superb form this season once again, as the Bees look to mount a run at the playoff places despite being a club who seemingly get stripped of their most valuable assets on a yearly basis.

Indeed, Bournemouth are known for snapping up talent from the Championship, with the likes of Lewis Cook and David Brooks both signing for Eddie Howe’s men in the last few seasons and going on to play key roles for the Cherries in the top flight.

Losing Mepham and Watkins would be a bitter blow for Bees manager Dean Smith, who will see both players as key components of his squad once again.

Watkins in particular has impressed, making the jump from League Two football with Exeter two seasons back with ease and developing into one of the finest attacking talents in the division.

Brentford fans, what do you think? Would you sell either of these pair? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
