Preston North End are interested in Conor Bradley and the Liverpool talent has shown exactly why with another goal for Botlon Wanderers.

PNE boss Ryan Lowe was spotted watching Bolton in action against Burton Albion at the end of October.

The Bolton News report that the reason for Lowe’s trip was to watch Bradley in action ahead of trying to sign him in January.

This one isn’t easy.

Bradley is on a season-long loan at Bolton from Liverpool, but the Reds can feasibly recall Bradley in January and send him elsewhere.


PNE are seemingly hoping that Liverpool will fancy sending him to the Championship.

After all, North End have already proven their ability to develop Liverpool talent having take Sepp van den Berg on loan for 18 months.

Northern Ireland international Bradley would give Ryan Lowe the extra right wing back he has been seeking for months.

Lowe wants his wing backs to make a real impact going forward and Bradley did just that for Bolton on Saturday.

Bolton were 1-0 down at Fleetwood when Bradley popped up inside the six yard box to equalise with just minutes to play.

Bolton went onto win but that ability to attack the back post is just so important from wing backs.

We see Brad Potts doing that for North End too and Bradley showing those attacking instincts is very encouraging.

That goal takes Bradley’s season output to three goals and four assists in 16 games for Bolton, which is a goal contribution almost once every other game.

That’s ultimately why PNE are showing an interest and North End will surely be watching him very closely with League One action ongoing during the World Cup break.
