Wycombe Wanderers are reportedly interested in signing Shrewsbury Town captain Luke Leahy.

It has been suggested that the Chairboys are keen to secure the services of the former Bristol Rovers and Walsall player after he handed in a transfer request at the start of the week.

However, despite Wanderers’ interest, the club are ‘no way near’ Shrewsbury’s asking price for the 30-year-old who has one more year left on his contract.

Several other teams are also eager to sign Leahy, with Wrexham of League Two also supposedly putting in a bid.

Leahy has been with the Salops for two seasons where he has scored 20 times in 91 games across all competitions.

During that period, he won the club’s Player of the Season award on both occasions and scored the winner for Shrewsbury against Wycombe in August 2022 with a last-minute penalty.

The result, which ended 2-1 for the Shropshire side, was the first time in Football League history that they had won a league fixture at Adams Park.

Speaking on the club's transfer policy, Wycombe boss Matt Bloomfield told the Free Press: "I do think there is a really fine line and balance between getting your business done early and not panicking into the wrong deals.

“We’re trying to be as calculated as we possibly can by trying to use the budget as wisely as we can.

“It’s really important for a club our size to think about every pound we spend and every signing we make.”

Mainly a left-back, Leahy can also sit as a defensive midfielder and is known for his goal-scoring abilities. 

So far, he has scored 51 career goals in 474 career games.
