West Brom want to sign a new centre-back and striker before the end of the month – but only if the price is right, according to Dharmesh Sheth.
Sam Allardyce has already added two new players to the Albion squad this month with Andy Lonergan arriving on a free transfer and Robert Snodgrass joining on an 18-month contract from West Ham.
However, Big Sam isn’t done there and seems to want at least two new players before the January transfer window slams shut.
Speaking on Sky Sports News’ Transfer Show, Sheth said: “West Brom remain in the market for a striker and a central defender – provided the price is right.”
A striker, a centre-back and a miracle
If West Brom are going to stay in the Premier League this season then Allardyce and Luke Dowling need more than just a couple of new players at The Hawthorns – they need a miracle.
Albion have won just one of their 17 Premier League matches this season and sit 19th in the table, six points from safety with an embarrassingly bad goal difference.
Slaven Bilic saw the Baggies concede a lot of goals during his time in charge but the defence has been on another level – in the worst way possible – since Allardyce was appointed with the Albion conceding 12 goals in three home matches at The Hawthorns.
Allardyce needs more than just a striker and a centre-back, let’s face it.
West Brom’s defence, midfield and attack is not up to the level it needs to be to stay in the Premier League due to a lack of investment from owner Guochuan Lai in the summer.
