View: West Brom should move for Premier League ace Dwight Gale
West Brom should move in for Newcastle forward Dwight Gayle in the summer with the Premier League side ready to accept offers.
Reports by The Telegraph say that Steve Bruce’s former side are willing to listen to offers ahead of the transfer window with the 32-year-old allowed to leave St James’ Park should a new club be found.
With Albion set to undergo a rebuild as they look to claim back their place in the Premier League, Gayle might be the man to help them after continuous links.
Bruce is desperate for an attacker with quality with Karlan Grant the only forward to hit double figures in front of goal this season.
Gayle, a former fan favourite has been very impressive in the Championship, having a hand in 32 goals the last time he played in the division for the Baggies.
Given the fact that Albion have just let Andy Carroll go, it seems unlikely that they will sign Gayle. They are fairly similar in terms of age and careers but the Baggies cant afford to be picky with their attackers for next season after this terrible campaign.
None of the forwards truly deserve to be at the club given their lack of creativity and cutting edge all season and that is one thing that the former Crystal Palace man has shown in abundance.
This would be a very low-risk move for West Brom given that he has already proved himself at the club and would likely feel right at home upon his arrival.
The forward has been brilliant for the Baggies before and he can certainly do it again. The fans would have now issues with the move as well with him being a massive favourite at the Hawthorns previously.
They could consider him on a short term basis in case people’s worst fears do come true and he is old and washed up.
In other West Brom news, Albion are set for a “huge battle” to sign a 33 G/A wonder in a major summer deal according to a report.
