West Brom: Ismael could swoop in to sign Jamie Paterson

There is no doubt that West Brom and Valerien Ismael will be looking to add quality to their team in the January transfer window, as they endeavour on a battle in the second half of the season to climb into one of the automatic promotion spots.

Although Albion are maintaining their ability to dominate inside the Championship as they currently sit fourth in the table, their lack of goals and poor finishing is costing them valuable points and catching up on them in the league table.

They go into their game on Saturday having not won in their last four fixtures, scoring once almost a month ago against Middlesbrough.

This lack of firepower has added huge speculation surrounding West Brom, the January transfer window and which forwards they could attract to join the club and save their season before they fall any further.

What’s the word?

According to the Daily Mail, Jamie Paterson has now had his name thrown into the mix of strikers, wingers and forwards on the Baggies’ list of potential signings.

Paterson has also only signed a one year contract with Swansea this season, so West Brom could also get the player at a cut price in the January transfer window, which will surely only add to the attraction to snap up the forward.

Saving their season

The 29-year-old is currently at Swansea, after moving to the Welsh side from Bristol City and has been performing impressively in his time with the team, scoring eight goals and registering four assists in 20 appearances so far this season.

Because of that, he’s earned rave reviews, particularly from a former teammate in Lloyd Kelly who said:

“He’s got the quality of a top player.”

“And obviously the form that he’s in at the moment is good for him.”

Should West Brom sign Paterson?

No chance!

No chance!



Paterson is definitely proving he has the ability to finish and also assist his teammates with his current 12 involvements making him an ideal fit for West Brom due to their current goal drought and complete lack of finishing. For example, they’ve had a shocking 61 shots and 0 goals in their last three games.

Consequently, the striker could definitely be somebody who saves their season and pushes them towards promotion.

It isn’t certain what the exact plans are for West Brom going forward, and if they will add players to their squad in the upcoming transfer window at all remains to be seen. However, Ismael will have to inject something into Albion, to get the side back into contention for promotion.

West Brom face sixth-placed Coventry City at the weekend and will be desperate to take three points from the game, as a loss could see them fall further down the Championship table to as low as seventh.
