EXCLUSIVE: Prem duo to battle for £10m Brentford attacker

Brentford are set to lose striking starlet Ollie Watkins this summer, with Burnley and Bournemouth battling for his signature, we can exclusively reveal.

Watkins, 22, only joined Brentford from Exeter last summer in a £2million deal – but the Bees are set to quadruple their money just 12-months on with a fee of £10million set to be banked.

Watkins has had a brilliant first campaign at Championship level, and he is set for a quick-fire move to the Premier League.

Brentford are set to replace him by again dipping into the lower leagues – and one man they are keen on landing is Colchester attacking midfielder Sammie Szmodics, and they have already made an approach.
