Signing Windass would be a great way for West Brom to continue their rebuild

According to the Daily Mail, West Brom are targeting Rangers’ Josh Windass this summer.

Windass put in a strong showing last season in the Scottish Premiership, finding the back of the net 12 times and racking up 8 assists in the top flight.

So far this summer, following the Baggies’ relegation from the Premier League, Moore has already lost several first team stars. Jonny Evans, James McClean and Ben Foster, amongst others, have all departed the Hawthorns.

With all of these exits having taken place, and yet more looking set to follow, the pressure is on Moore to get his rebuild of the playing squad to gather pace.

The Breakdown

The Baggies aren’t only light on numbers centrally, but they also lack depth in the wide positions too. One of Windass’ attributes, which could make him such an asset at the Hawthorns, is his versatility.

The 24-year-old is comfortable playing on the left flank, as well as through the middle. Centrally, he can take up space in deeper-lying territory in order to create chances for his teammates, as well as being able to advance into goalscoring positions himself.

Prior to his move to Scotland, the highest level Windass played at in the English football pyramid was League Two, where he enjoyed a successful spell with Accrington Stanley. However, that does mean that he’d arrive at West Brom yet to prove he can cut it in the Championship, especially as part of a promotion-hopeful West Brom side.

Windass deserves the chance to prove any doubters wrong. Transfermarkt value the Hull-born attacker at £630k. For a fee in that region, Moore should roll the dice on Windass’ potential.
