As for Blackburn Rovers, they also aren’t rushing into any deals. They managed to stay up on the final day of the last campaign after winning away at promoted Leicester City.

John Eustace is now gearing up for his first full term in charge at Ewood Park and the ex-Birmingham City man may have identified Chiwome as a possible striking addition.

Who is Chiwome?

The teenager is an England youth international who has been with Wolves since 2022. Prior to his switch there, he was on the books at AFC Wimbledon.

He was handed his first professional deal in February before making his debut in March in an FA Cup loss to Coventry City.

Chiwome then made his first league start against Aston Villa in March and the fact Gary O’Neil’s side have tied him down on a long-term basis suggests he is highly-rated.
