Wigan and Millwall join the list of clubs chasing 15-goal winger

The interest in Jamal Lowe shows no sign of stopping with Wigan and Millwall the latest clubs interested in him, according to the Portsmouth News.

Wigan manager Paul Cook knows all about Lowe, having signed him for Portsmouth from Hampton & Richmond Borough in 2016.

The winger scored four goals in 14 appearances that season as he helped Portsmouth to the League Two title, and he has continued to impress on the south coast.

Leeds and Cardiff have also been linked with the 24-year-old, and the transfer battle could see his transfer value increase significantly.

Portsmouth have already stated they want £2 million, but this fee could rise given the competition between clubs and the finances available to teams like Leeds and Cardiff.

Lowe scored 15 and assisted nine in 45 appearances in League One for Portsmouth last season. His contract expires next summer so Portsmouth may look to cash in on him now to prevent the risk of losing him on a free.

The Verdict

Jamal Lowe is a very exciting talent. He has proved himself an excellent League One player and there is no surprise that he is wanted by a host of Championship clubs. 15 goals for a winger is exceptional, and he is only going to get better at 24, meaning he would be a coup if anyone manages to sign him.

Portsmouth should do all they can to hang onto him for at least another year. He could be the difference in whether they get promoted or not. If Portsmouth are a Championship club by the time his contract expires that could persuade him to stay and sign a new deal, which would be win-win for the club.
