Lowe has been impressed by Woodburn’s ability during pre-season and believes that the Lilywhites could potentially get the best out of the attacking midfielder.
A product of Liverpool’s academy, Woodburn only made 11 appearances for the club’s senior side during his time at Anfield.
Loaned out on four separate occasions by Jurgen Klopp’s side, the Wales international spent the previous campaign with Hearts.
Lowe has already bolstered his Preston squad this summer by signing goalkeepers Freddie Woodman and David Cornell.
Making reference to Woodburn, Lowe has admitted that the Lilywhites could potentially make a move for the former Oxford United loanee.
“I’ve liked him for several years and I spoke to his agent every pre-season for several years.
“We know he’s come into a good environment, he knows he’s come into a good environment, he’s shown already his qualities that he’s got and he’s staying fit.
“Ben might be something we could do in the near future.
“He’s got fantastic talent and we want to be the ones to bring that out of him.”
If Woodburn continues to impress in the coming days, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Preston do indeed decide to offer him a contract.
Whereas the attacking midfielder failed to make a lasting impact during his spell in the Championship with Sheffield United, there is no reason why he cannot go on to succeed under the guidance of Lowe.
Having played seven games at this level during his career, it may not take Woodburn too long to get back into the swing of things in the second-tier.
With Preston aiming to make four or five more signings in the current window, they could potentially go on to achieve a relative amount of success if they nail their recruitment.
