West Brom once again secured their Premier League status last season, and have gotten off to a great start this term, beating Bournemouth 1-0 on the opening weekend.
Manager Tony Pulis is slowly putting together a solid Premier League team at the Hawthorns, and he will be hoping they can press on further this season and secure a higher finish than last time out.
To do so, the Baggies will need to add some quality to their ranks, and our landlord here in the Tavern has been getting thoughts off the West Brom fans and having a look at just who the club could look to sign.
One player who the landlord thinks they could make a move for is former Chelsea man and current Reading star John Swift. The versatile midfielder was with the England under-21’s this summer, and impressed in his appearances for Aidy Boothroyd’s men.
Swift has really come into his own since making the move to Reading, and finally looks to be fulfilling the obvious potential he showed while at Chelsea as a young player.
His ability to pick out a pass and score the spectacular make him the ideal modern day midfield player, and he is certainly someone who when you look up close could make a real difference to how West Brom go about their business in the midfield areas.
Reading will be hard pushed to sell one of their star man, but if a big bid did come in, then Swift may well fancy chancing his arm in the top flight under Pulis.
