Wrexham face transfer battle as Championship clubs target one of their best players

Wrexham face transfer battle as Championship clubs target one of their best players

They won't want to lose him this summer.

Wrexham face a battle to keep one of their best players this summer amid interest from Championship clubs.

The Welsh club owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have enjoyed a dream season, securing automatic promotion to League Two as champions of the National League.

Reynolds and McElhenney have previously spoken of their ambition to take Wrexham all the way to the Premier League.

They will no doubt be hoping for back-to-back promotions, with the bookies making Wrexham the early favourites to win League One next season.

While they are expected to make a number of new signings this summer, Wrexham will be determined to keep hold of their star names.

One player who has been linked with a move away from the Racecourse Ground is highly-rated midfielder Tom O'Connor.

The 24-year-old Irishman played a key role in Wrexham's promotion, scoring six times in 29 appearances in all competitions.

According to The Mirror, O'Connor has attracted the attention of clubs in the Championship.

Play-off final losers Coventry, who Wrexham beat in the FA Cup earlier this season, are said to be tracking the former Southampton youngster.

O'Connor is under contract with Wrexham until June 2025 after joining from Burton Albion in January 2022.

Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson is determined to keep his best players this summer and is hopeful of building a squad capable of challenging at the top of League One.

"We will assess everything and keep all the good players we have got, and add a little bit of quality as the summer progresses," Parkinson said last month.

He added: "As we have said all along, the aim was to build a squad which would grow with the club. I feel we have got players who are ready for the next level.

"Of course, a lot of them have played at this level and above. There's a few who haven't but I feel they have got the potential to step up."
