According to a report by BBC Sport, Sheffield Wednesday are one of a number of Championship clubs keen on loaning Josh Murphy this month.
The Owls face competition from Nottingham Forest and Derby County in the race for his signature, but the Yorkshire club may have an edge when it comes to convincing him to come to Hillsborough.
Indeed, every Wednesday fan will remember that his twin brother, Jacob, spent last season on loan in Yorkshire, and a good word from him could turn the tide in his favour.
Jacob had a great spell at Wednesday, netting nine league goals last term, and Josh will certainly be hoping to replicate that if he arrives this month.
So, what type of player is Josh Murphy? Much like his brother, he’s a winger, but he plays more on the left, and he aspires to be like some of the best left-sided players in the world, claiming that he wants to be liked Gareth Bale and Neymar.
“When I was getting older it would be wingers who I would aspire to be like. Like Bale and Neymar. Like all the top wingers, I just try to be the best I can be. There are loads of things,” Murphy said in 2019.
Murphy may not be at Bale and Neymar’s level, but the fact that he models his game on these two mercurial talents is exciting to hear.
After months of watching Tony Pulis and Garry Monk manage the Owls, Wednesday fans deserve a bit of entertainment, and it seems as though Murphy will certainly provide that.
