Hamza Choudhury emerges as West Brom 'prime' summer target

Leicester City midfielder Hamza Choudhury is now a “prime target” for West Brom in the summer transfer window, according to reports by Express & Star.

The 24-year-old featured only 12 times across all competitions in the 2021/22 season for Brendan Rodgers’ side 

With the Englishman set to fall further down the pecking order at the King Power Stadium, Steve Bruce will look to tempt him to the Hawthorns for the 2022/23 campaign. 

A loan deal for the Choudhury is the most likely outcome should he leave the Foxes for the Baggies. 

However, a permanent deal is on the cards should the two clubs agree on a fee for the former England youth international. 

Quality.

This would be a really good move for Albion as they look to get back to the Premier League next season. 

What better way to get yourself back into the topflight than by adding a topflight level player to your ranks. 

Choudhury has been a stalwart in the Leicester squad since 2018. Admittedly, he might not have played a massive role but his quality and experience can definitely be used. 

The former Burton Albion ace doesn’t only have Premier League experience but his European escapades would be really beneficial in the Championship. 

He holds more experience than most – if not all – of the players currently in the West Brom squad which means he would certainly be an improvement.

Choudhury’s quality on the ball and ability to find a pass is something Bruce is desperate to add to the squad with that being a major issue throughout last season. 

Let’s face it, the Foxes won’t miss him and he could be a star at the Hawthorns so this is a deal that the Baggies really need to try and get over the line.
