A number of West Brom fans have been reacting to the latest report from Football Insider that both Brentford and Burnley are interested in making a move for Darnell Furlong.
Furlong was a key player for the Baggies last term in the Premier League and he managed to make 35 appearances in which he scored one goal and also provided three assists. The 25-year-old was also a key performer in the 2019/20 season as West Brom secured promotion to the top-flight.
According to the latest report from Football Insider, Burnley and Brentford have both turned their attention towards a move for Furlong this summer with both clubs keen to enhance their options in the right-back department.
It is believed that West Brom could be forced into cashing in on the defender during the transfer window to compensate for their relegation from the Premier League last term.
That comes with the Baggies believed to braced for bids for a few of their most influential performers from last term.
