West Brom’s Josh Griffiths will be a top target for Darren Moore and Sheffield Wednesday this summer, says Football FanCast‘s EFL spy.
Goalkeeper is thought to be one position that Moore is keen on strengthening this transfer window, and Griffiths appears to be the man he has turned to.
According to Yorkshire Live, Moore is tracking the West Brom youngster, though he faces competition from Portsmouth and Lincoln City.
Interest from Wednesday’s League One rivals complicates things, but FFC‘s EFL insider believes Griffiths will be a priority for the former Doncaster Rovers manager.
“Josh Griffiths is a top target and rightly so,” he said. “He had a great season with Cheltenham’s promotion side and had another step up with them.
“Darren Moore would have worked with him at West Brom so there will be a lot of assurance and confidence from the staff for him to come into the massive club Wednesday is and do well.”
Having recently released Keiren Westwood, it is easy to see why Moore has made signing a goalkeeper before the start of the new season a top priority. And, obviously being aware of Griffiths from his time at West Brom, targeting the 19-year-old makes sense.
Given their current financial issues, though, it remains to be seen if Wednesday actually have the resources to get such a deal over the line.
