Championship

West Brom must swap Oliver Burke for Ollie Watkins

West Brom must swap Oliver Burke for Ollie Watkins

West Bromwich Albion are one of the form teams in the Championship as they continue to hunt down an automatic promotion place. 

The Midlands club have been completely redefined under Darren Moore, despite a poor start to proceedings in the current campaign, with promotion straight back to the Premier League being the main aim from here on in.

One struggle for West Brom has been getting the best out of a player that signed last summer, Oliver Burke.

Indeed, the youngster has looked miles off the pace since joining the club as he continues to be left out of the side by Darren Moore. The 21-year-old has the potential to become one of the best in English football, but his lack of development in recent times has really halted his progress.

With that in mind, the Baggies should think about upgrading by bringing in this star…

Ollie Watkins

The forward, who is valued at £6.3 million (by Transfermarkt), has been one of the standout performers in the Championship so far this season, scoring a handful of goals and providing a number of assists.

Indeed, the 22-year-old belongs in the Premier League having witnessed his efforts in recent years, with a January move for him possibly helping the Baggies ensure promotion.

An attack that consists of Dwight Gayle, Jay Rodgriguez, Harvey Barnes and Ollie Watkins would surely be unstoppable in the Championship.
