West Bromwich Albion have been linked with a move for Spezia striker M’Bala Nzola, as reported by beIN Sports journalist Tancredi Palmeri.
The Lowdown: West Bromwich Albion eye promotion in 2021/22
Unbeaten in 2021/22 so far following two wins and a draw, the Baggies are building some momentum, in what is an important season for West Brom as they try and secure a return to the Premier League at the first attempt.
Making inroads in the transfer market, Valerien Ismael’s men have acquired three individuals in the form off Matt Clarke, Alex Mowatt and Adam Reach [Transfermarkt].
Now, they could be set to add more depth to their forward line following recent developments.
Would Nzola be a good signing for West Brom?
The Latest: Baggies keen on Nzola
Speaking to his large Twitter audience, Italian reporter Palmeri signified that ‘Fulham and West Bromwich are looking’ into the Italian top flight and have ‘contacted’ Spezia over the Angola international.
A fee of around €7m (£6m) is said to be enough to secure his services this summer.
Clubs in Portugal and Turkey are also mooted to be attracted to his situation.
The Verdict: Nzola would be an astute signing
Perhaps in need of another goalscorer to spearhead their promotion push, Nzola would be a very promising addition to the West Brom ranks.
In 2020/21, he excelled for his current employers, registering 14 goal contributions in 25 encounters; 11 goals and three assists [Transfermarkt].
Furthermore, he impressed with his ability to link the play efficiently up front, recording an 84.3% passing accuracy across the season [WhoScored].
Once labelled as ‘very important’ by Spezia president Stefano Chisoli, West Brom should look to finalise a deal for his signature due to his clinical finishing ability [Geordie Boot Boys].
