West Bromwich Albion are starting to hit top form at the perfect time in their season, with the Championship play-offs on the horizon.
The Baggies recently made a change to James Shan’s backroom staff as they’ve now drafted in Michael Appleton to as his assistant, which could prove to be a genius decision.
And, it appears as if the Midlands club have their eye on another man, as according to Football League World, West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Portsmouth’s Jamal Lowe this summer.
Lowe has been one of the standout performers in League One this season and he still has time to develop, so here are the potential consequences of West Brom signing him this summer…
WEST BROM SECURE MURPHY REPLACEMENT
Jacob Murphy hasn’t exactly set the Hawthorns alight since joining from Newcastle United back in January.
The winger has produced just two goals and one assist in the Championship, so it’s unlikely that the Baggies will want to sign him permanently in the summer transfer window.
Therefore, Jamal Lowe could replace Murphy in the summer as he’s everything you could want in a winger, with the pace to excite, incredible finishing ability and he can even create in the final third.
KYLE EDWARDS CONCERNED
Kyle Edwards has made a name for himself at the Hawthorns in recent times as the Baggies’ secret weapon in a way, with two goals to his name in all competitions this season. He’s offered a different dynamic in the final third and he will play a big part in their promotion push, but Lowe’s arrival may concern the 21-year-old.
Of course, Lowe would more than likely be a regular at the Hawthorns if he makes the switch in the summer and the likes of Jay Rodriguez and Matt Phillips could complete the forward line. So, Edwards could find himself on the substitutes’ bench more often than not, which would be a step backwards after his recent performances.
