West Brom: Steven Schumacher a new managerial target -West Bromwich Albion News

West Bromwich Albion have placed Plymouth Argyle manager Steven Schumacher on their managerial wish list, according to Alan Nixon.

The Lowdown: Plenty of links

Chief executive Ron Gourlay is the man tasked with bringing in Steve Bruce’s long-term replacements, with a number of managers linked with The Hawthorns vacancy in recent days.

The likes of Michael Carrick, Roy Keane, Chris Wilder, Gary Rowett, Carlos Corberan, Leam Richardson and Russell Martin have all been mentioned as possible targets.

Schumacher has been in permanent charge of Argyle since December and has the Pilgrims top of League One, which appears to have caught the eye of Gourlay.

The Latest: Nixon’s post

Nixon took to Twitter on Sunday to provide an update on West Brom’s managerial hunt.

He shared a link to his Patreon account which claimed that the Baggies have placed Schumacher on a list of potential targets.

The Verdict: Interesting

Schumacher shares the same agent as three West Brom players and has worked wonders in the south west, winning 11 of Argyle’s first 14 League One fixtures this season.

The 38-year-old likes to play a 3-5-2 system but has adapted to a 3-4-2-1 formation during the current campaign, something which has proven to be extremely effective.

He has certainly impressed over the last 12 months, so it could be a shrewd appointment if West Brom were to bring him to the Championship.

However, it could prove difficult to lure him to the Midlands after Schumacher expressed his happiness at Home Park in recent weeks amid links of a move to Huddersfield Town.
