West Brom to listen to offers for Callum Robinson this summer
West Brom are “expected to listen to offers” for Callum Robinson this summer, according to The Athletic.
The news outlet reported on 16 June that Steve Bruce might want to keep Robinson, 27, as cover for his attack as the Ireland forward has three years left on his contract at The Hawthorns.
However, it is understood that the Baggies could be receptive to any bids made for the former Aston Villa and Sheffield United attacker ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Robinson finished the 2021/22 season with eight goals and nine assists in 44 appearances across all competitions.
No West Brom player supplied more assists and only Karlan Grant outscored the Republic of Ireland international.
However, it’s been clear for a while now that Robinson is a player who the Baggies could easily do without and Steve Bruce seemed to think as much too as the 27-year-old was regularly benched by the manager after he arrived in February.
Even Valerien Ismael sought to drop Robinson at times.
Ismael rotated the front-three often but once it got towards January, the former West Brom boss barely started Robinson has he aimed to improve the club’s form.
Albion fans grew tired of Robinson too.
While he was directly involved in 17 goals, you always had the feeling that he was never putting 100 per cent into his performances and at The Hawthorns, there’s no room for passengers in front of a crowd that’s grown tired of the club’s woes in recent years.
Robinson’s even been called out for his displays on international duty recently with Irish pundit Eamon Dunphy writing in his Irish Daily Star column that the Baggies attacker “is usually a blunt instrument” and is “the most overhyped Ireland player in a long time”.
The majority of Albion fans are likely to agree with that.
In other West Brom news, Albion are also in advanced talks to sign another new player at The Hawthorns this summer.
