Premier League trio looking to sign 21-year-old striker, as Middlesbrough prepare £7m bid



A trio of Premier League clubs have entered the race to sign West Ham United’s Ashley Fletcher this summer, according to the Mirror’s live blog (25/7, 21:34).

Middlesbrough, Reading and Wolverhampton Wanderers have recently been linked with a move for the 21-year-old striker, but the Sky Bet Championship trio now face competition from the top-flight.

Brighton and Hove Albion, Huddersfield Town and Watford are interested in taking Fletcher away from the London Stadium on-loan next season, after the striker found himself pushed down the pecking order following Javier Hernandez’s arrival.

Despite the Premier League interest in a loan deal for Fletcher, Boro remain confident of luring the striker away from London with a permanent offer.

Garry Monk’s side are reportedly preparing a £7m bid for the West Ham striker, which they hope will give them the edge in agreeing a deal for Fletcher.

Fletcher only arrived at West Ham 12-months ago, but he struggled to make a serious impact, featuring on just 20 occasions across all competitions and scoring one goal.

Prior to his move to West Ham, Fletcher came through the Manchester United academy and spent time on-loan in League One with Barnsley, where he scored eight goals for the Tykes during the 2015/16 campaign.

Where do you think Fletcher will be playing his football next season? Will he stay in the Premier League or move down into the Championship? Let us know your thoughts!
