West Brom are reportedly in the race to sign former Brentford midfielder Emiliano Marcondes, as Valerien Ismael eyes up new additions.
The Lowdown: Ismael looks to make his mark
The Baggies are about to embark on an exciting next chapter in their history, following the appointment of Ismael from Barnsley.
He will surely be on the lookout for new signings during the summer transfer window, in order to aid West Brom’s promotion push in the Championship next season with players who fit his system and profile.
Will West Brom be promoted?
The Latest: Marcondes emerges as target
One player who has been linked with a move to the Hawthorns is Marcondes, with The Express claiming that the Ismael’s side have ‘entered the race’ to sign the 26-year-old.
Nottingham Forest and Barnsley are both believed to be interested in signing Marcondes, too.
The Verdict: Ideal summer addition
Marcondes could be a shrewd addition by West Brom this summer, especially given his experience of helping a team reach the Premier League.
The Dane scored two goals and registered three assists in the league last season despite making most of his appearances as a late substitute, highlighting his ability to chip in as an impact player off the bench.
Only 14 of his 34 league appearances in 2020/21 were starts – but strong squad depth will only make the Baggies more formidable under Ismael.
