West Brom continued their steady progress in the Premier League last season under Tony Pulis, and they once again proved themselves to be one of the toughest teams to beat in the top flight.
Under the former Stoke gaffer, they have developed a resolute playing style, and the Baggies fans here in the Tavern are pretty content with the way things are going at the Hawthorns.
This summer represents a chance for the club to once again delve into the transfer market though, and goals will surely be on the agenda for Pulis as he looks to improve his striking options.
Our landlord has been chatting with the Albion fans over by the pool table this week, and one name he mentioned is current Leeds striker Chris Wood, valued at £5.1m by Transfermarkt.
The big New Zealander was in phenomenal form all last season for Leeds, proving himself to be one of the top strikers outside of the Premier League.
A host of top flight clubs will no doubt be interested in Wood, who has height, power, and natural finishing ability in abundance. At 25, he is the ideal age still to develop further into a top Premier League striker, and he should certainly interest a team like West Brom.
Leeds will be keen to keep hold of Wood, but money does talk in football, and if the Baggies could stump up the cash, then Wood would find it very difficult to turn down a move back to the top flight.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
