West Bromwich Albion taking a gamble if Aarons is signed

West Bromwich Albion are considering making a move for Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons due to the likely departure of James McClean, according to Wednesday’s transfer blog via The Mirror.

What’s the word?

The Baggies have been linked to numerous players since suffering relegation to the Championship at the end last season.

However, manager Darren Moore is yet to add a new face to his squad.

There have been a handful of departures, though, and one who could be on his way out of the club is James McClean.

If the Irishman leaves then the Baggies require a replacement, and according to The Mirror, Aarons is a potential target.

Is he good enough?

The 22-year-old has been at Newcastle since 2012 where he developed his game before making his first-team debut two years later.

There was a lot of hype around the left-sided winger, who can also play on the right when required.

However, he has been unable to fulfil his potential at the North-East outfit, which suggests that a move would be beneficial.

Last season, Aarons joined Hellas Verona in January on loan and made just 11 Serie A appearances.

There is no reason why the winger could not thrive at West Brom, but it is a risk due to his lack if game time.
