West Brom eyeing up Matej Vydra

West Brom eyeing up Matej Vydra

West Bromwich Albion are looking at trying to make their squad as strong as possible as they look for a quick return to the Premier League.

The Baggies were relegated from the top-flight last season and Darren Moore has been under increasing pressure to try and keep his main players from departing The Hawthorns this summer.

In what is proving to be a difficult task, Albion have already lost a number of stars during the window and it is expected that a few more could also head for the hills in the coming weeks.

Moore will want to bring in a number of players to ensure his side are still in a position to challenge next year, and according to reports, it appears he has identified a striker he wants to lead the line, should they lose Salomon Rondon or Jay Rodriguez.

According to the Express and Star, the Baggies are considering a swoop for Derby County’s Matej Vydra, who has been strongly linked with a move to Leeds United, as a replacement for the Venezuela and England internationals.

West Brom will need to put up a fee in the region of around £11million for the Czech forward if they want to bring him back to The Hawthorns following a loan spell five years ago.

The Verdict:

The Baggies would not go wrong if they were to target Vydra this summer as he has proven to be a much better player than he was five years ago.

The 26-year-old is one of the most prolific strikers when it comes to the Championship and would certainly give the Baggies a chance of returning to the Premier League.
