West Brom are reportedly interested in signing Blackburn Rovers duo Joe Rothwell and Darragh Lenihan in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Big summer ahead
It has been a hugely disappointing season for the Baggies, who were considered one of the Championship‘s main promotion contenders back in August.
Instead, they find themselves languishing in 10th place in the table, with Valerien Ismael long gone and Steve Bruce also struggling for consistency since replacing him as manager.
There is no doubt that a big summer is required at The Hawthorns in terms of signings, and a fresh report suggests that the Albion hierarchy are wasting little time in trying to strengthen the squad for next term.
Will Steve Bruce get West Brom back into the Premier League?
Yes, we're going up!
Maybe next year
The Latest: Baggies eye double deal
Both players see their current deals at Ewood Park expire at the end of the season, at which point they would be available on free transfers.
The Verdict: Strong additions
Rothwell and Lenihan have both been key players for Blackburn throughout this season, aiding their promotion push and showing why they could be exciting signings for the Baggies.
Rothwell has registered 10 assists in the Championship, outlining his creative quality in midfield and being hailed as “amazing” by his manager Tony Mowbray. Meanwhile, the latter has excelled in defensive midfield, winning 5.1 aerial duels per game and lauded by Mowbray as a “special footballer“.
At 27 and 28 respectively, they are also at an ideal age to come in and add experience to the squad, while also be young enough to hopefully continue playing at a high level for another few years.
