West Brom open talks to sign Millwall winger Jed Wallace
West Brom have reportedly opened talks to sign Millwall winger Jed Wallace who is set to be a free agent.
According to Sun journalist Alan Nixon, Steve Bruce is keen on signing the 28-year-old and is willing to offer him a lucrative package to consider moving to the Hawthorns.
It’s understood that the Baggies boss believes that he’s got a fighting chance of convincing the Englishman to stay put in the Championship.
Nixon shared the transfer update and wrote, “Steve Bruce’s West Brom are trying to talk Jed Wallace into staying in the Championship.
“Bruce is keen to land the talented left-sided forward for his Baggies squad and offer him a lucrative package to join.
“Wallace is a free agent and his advisers are trying to find him a home in Europe where Turkish clubs have been alerted.
“But Bruce thinks he has a fighting chance of landing Wallace on good money that is still within his budget.”
Get it done?
Now that the club have decided to stick with Bruce, it only makes sense to back him in the transfer market.
He’s got years of the managerial pedigree which could be imperative to get the Baggies back to the Premier League.
However, for that, he will need a squad that can match his ambitions and thus far, he’s certainly got plenty lacking in the dressing room.
Wallace would be an incredible addition to this side and would instantly give the other players a boost.
He’s got experience of playing in the Championship as well and could be key to West Brom’s fight for promotion.
Former Millwall forward Sam Parking has also waxed lyrical over him in an interview in May 2022.
He told News Shopper, “He’s been phenomenal and I don’t imagine they’ll have much money to reinvest, so it’s going to have to be a loan, or taking an opportunity on someone from a lower division, to try and replace him.
Whether or not Wallace wants to stay in the division, remains to be seen.
