West Brom: Joseph Masi shares Steve Bruce transfer wish

West Brom: Joseph Masi shares Steve Bruce transfer wish -West Bromwich Albion News

West Brom are still in the market for midfield reinforcements during the summer transfer window, according to reliable journalist Joseph Masi.

The Lowdown: Crucial summer for West Brom

The Baggies endured a disappointing 2021/22 campaign, starting as one of the favourites to be promoted to the Premier League but ultimately falling away.

There is now pressure on Steve Bruce and his players to improve drastically next term, and summer signings will be needed in order for that to happen.

Some new faces have already come in, including John Swift and Jed Wallace, but it looks as though West Brom’s business isn’t done just yet.

The Latest: Masi drops midfield claim

Writing for The Express & Star on Monday, Masi outlined that Bruce is ‘eager to strengthen’ in midfield this summer, seeing it as a key area to focus on, with the West Brom manager himself admitting that his squad is “short” in that position.

Swift may already be a strong option in the middle of the park, but more quality is seemingly needed to meet the manager’s demands, with conventional wingers Callum Robinson and Adam Reach used in central roles against Stevenage at the weekend.

Baggies fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 campaign?

The Verdict: New midfielder is needed

Midfield is an influential area of the pitch for any team, and Bruce’s mix-and-match line-up on Saturday suggests that West Brom need to go up a level there if they want to mount a genuine promotion bid in 2022/23.

Swift looks set to play an attack-minded role, having scored 11 goals and registered 13 assists in the league for Reading last season, so a more defensive figure could be an ideal foil for the ex-Chelsea man.

Will West Brom gain promotion next season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Robinson and Reach have been used centrally during pre-season but a more tailor-made enforcer needs to come in, ideally someone who is going to provide stability and consistency in front of the defence.
