Championship

Rossi would provide cover to West Brom’s lethal attack

West Brom manager Darren Moore looks settled with his striker combination already this season.

Jay Rodriguez and Dwight Gayle look as though they will become a formidable duo spearheading The Baggies’ attack for the next eight months.

With Hal Robson-Kanu looking to be a deputy for those two men, Darren Moore will want another back-up if he is opting to play with two strikers.

That is where free-agent Giuseppe Rossi would be an amazing acquisition for The Baggies. The 30-cap Italy international is without a club after being released by Serie A outfit Genoa in the summer, and will be desperate to play at any standard.

A team that are chasing promotion back to the Premier League would be a great destination for the former Man United man, as every top player wants to be at a club that has ambition. The added bonus of returning to play in England’s top division would surely be enough to entice the player.

The Championship season is long and hard for a side that is chasing promotion, and squad depth is key. For a team that is adopting two strikers, Moore would surely want two players to cover his strikers. Additionally, if Rossi shows the quality that he has in the past, the versatility of Jay Rodriguez could mean that the Italian could partner Gayle up front with the Englishman playing deeper in the midfield.

This is a strange suggestion, but at this point in the season, it would be a wise move by The Baggies to strengthen the squad. With such a long time until the next transfer window, this small bit of business may give them enough to shoot up the table.
