Breaking:Wrexham has joined the competition to sign a Premier League player, with three Championship clubs also showing interest.

Wrexham has reportedly entered the race to sign a Premier League player, but they will face competition from Championship clubs.

The Red Dragons are gearing up for life in League One after securing back-to-back promotions.

Since Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney took over, Wrexham has been climbing the ranks of the English football pyramid.

Looking ahead to the summer transfer window, Wrexham have already been linked with a host of different names including the likes of Jamie Vardy, Arthur Okonkwo and Macaulay Langstaff.

Wrexham are reportedly eyeing a Premier League player, according to TEAMtalk. The Red Dragons are interested in Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Marc Leonard for the upcoming transfer window. Leonard, who was on loan at Northampton Town for the 23/24 season, impressed by winning both the Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season awards. The 22-year-old recorded five goals and six assists in League One.

Wrexham will face strong competition from Championship teams Hull City, Preston North End, and Plymouth Argyle.

Reports suggest Leonard could be sold for around £300,000, with Brighton unlikely to prevent his departure if he wishes to leave.

Leonard first moved to the Amex Stadium back in the summer of 2018 and has since spent time on loan at the likes of Rangers and Hearts.

Leonard has made just two first-team appearances for the Seagulls.

Regarding Wrexham’s preparations for League One, manager Phil Parkinson stated, “As I’ve mentioned before, we identify the player, arrange a deal, and evaluate its value. If it represents good value, we proceed to finalize it.”

The clubs we will be competing with for those players will have equal spending power so I haven’t really sensed that at the moment that people are trying to inflate the price because it is Wrexham.
