Sheffield Utd, Crystal Palace chasing Brentford striker Ollie Watkins

The race for Brentford striker Ollie Watkins is heating up.

Sky Sports says Brentford will demand a fee in the region of £25 million for Watkins, who has excelled in the Bees' front-line since switching position to replace Neal Maupay over the summer.

Crystal Palace look set to rival the Blades for the 23-year-old, with their manager Roy Hodgson also a keen admirer of the player.

As Brentford are confident of pushing for a play-off place this season, they'll be resistant to part company with their star player, who has scored 13 goals in the 2019/20 campaign thus far.
