The lowdown: Career so far
The versatile ace made the grade at Portsmouth making 121 appearances for the south coast club before moving to Wolves in 2015.
However, Wallace struggled at Molineux and was eventually sold to Millwall on a permanent basis following two long-term loan spells at The Den.
Since then, the Reading-born former England youth international has amassed 90 direct goal contributions in 259 outings for the Championship playoff chasers.
Now a fresh report has suggested that the Baggies could be keen…
The latest: West Brom waiting
As per the Express & Star, Albion ‘will enter the race’ to sign Wallace should the 28-year-old become a free agent at the end of the season.
Set to be out of contract in July, the report states that the ex-England Under 19 man is ‘expected to move on’ this summer.
Furthermore, it’s claimed that Baggies boss Steve Bruce is a ‘big fan’ of the man once hailed as ‘unbelievable’ by Gary Rowett.
The verdict: Get it done
So far this season Wallace has scored six times and provided 11 assists in 37 league outings – earning a 7.15 rating whilst creating 12 big chances, completing 1.0 dribble and making 2.6 key passes on average per game (Sofascore) – underlining the attacking midfielder’s first-class influence.
As Bruce attempts to bolster the ranks at the Hawthorns this summer, adding a player of the Englishman’s proven quality to the squad for nothing would be a superb piece of business.
Will Steve Bruce get West Brom back into the Premier League?
Yes, we're going up!
Maybe next year
Still holding a market value of £6.3million despite the dwindling contract (Transfermarkt), Wallace should be regarded as a top priority for West Brom on a Bosman deal.
