An uncertain future lies ahead for West Bromwich Albion.
Their new manager hunt is still up in the air, with many key players set to return to their parent clubs as well. If they can’t guarantee Premier League promotion this season, it’ll be a monumental task to do it again next time.
However, the Baggies are planning their future. Be it in the Premier League or another season in the Championship, they want to succeed wherever they are, clearly. West Brom are looking for young talent and according to reports (via the Scottish Sun), have turned their attention towards Liverpool’s Ben Woodburn.
Having recently been part of Sheffield United’s promotion gaining squad, Woodburn will return back to Merseyside soon. After that, he’ll probably be sent on another loan to gain experience at the top. A cunning forward, Woodburn adds a lot of options going forward due to his creativity, ability to drop back and dictate games as well.
A versatile player, Woodburn can also operate in midfield if needed. However, the 19-year-old is at his best playing forward. If Dwight Gayle is really to leave and they can’t hold onto Salomon Rondon, Woodburn can be a decent option to support Jay Rodriguez.
He’s clever with his movement, can link up really well and bring a hunger for goals.
West Brom have been successful with sealing loan deals recently. If they want to instil their attack with some unpredictability, getting the hard-working Woodburn can help them play attractive football wherever they end up next season.
