West Bromwich Albion should consider swooping for West Ham United winger Robert Snodgrass this summer.
The Baggies have a big task ahead of them as they try to steer themselves back into the Premier League following last season’s relegation.
Darren Moore’s first order of business will be to recruit some players good enough to tackle the Championship.
One man who should be under consideration is Snodgrass, who spent last season in the second division on loan at Aston Villa.
In that time, the Scotland international scored eight goals and created 13 assists in 40 Championship matches, which helped propel the Villans to the playoff final, where they ultimately lost to Fulham at Wembley.

According to West Ham insider ExWHUEmployee, who wrote exclusively for thewesthamway.co.uk, claims that Cardiff City, Middlesbrough, Fulham and Celtic are all keeping tabs on Snodgrass.
Given that he was swiftly sent out on loan by the Hammers last season, it is likely that the club will be open to offers.
The problem for West Brom, though, is that a number of clubs seem to be interested and it could end up turning into a battle for his signature.
If there is an opportunity to play in the Premier League, then it automatically puts the Baggies at a disadvantage as they cannot offer top-flight football.
However, Snodgrass’s ability with his left foot has the potential to cause havoc in the danger areas, so it is certainly worth West Brom making a move.
