West Bromwich Albion are gearing up for a busy summer transfer window as Steve Bruce confirmed there would be changes ahead of next season, and now a new update on a transfer target has emerged.
According to Football League World, West Brom have opened talks will Milwall winger Jed Wallace who is set to leave his current club on a free transfer this summer.
As per the report, it claims that sources have revealed that the Baggies are confident that they can get the deal done in the near future, and the player will join the club later this summer.
Something West Brom struggled with this season is finishing their chances and adding more clinical players will surely strengthen the team ahead of next season, so there is no doubt that Bruce will love Wallace.
According to SofaScore, the 28-year-old attacker has scored six goals and contributed 12 assists, creating 14 big chances, making 2.5 key passes and taking 2.7 shots on average per game over 38 appearances in the Championship this season, proving he can be a real threat in front of goal, something West Brom desperately need.
The Baggies have confirmed that they will release their short-term attacking solution Andy Carroll at the end of his contract this summer, so identifying a new experienced and reliable attacker will be a top priority for Bruce and if the sources are to be believed it seems that Wallace could be the perfect solution that can save the club millions.
Both Romaine Sawyers and England goal-keeper Sam Johnstone will also be released by the club this summer, and as a result, Bruce will be keen to get a deal over the line for the Millwall star so he can move on to identifying signings in other areas of the squad that require his immediate attention.
Burnley, Leeds United and Besiktas are three clubs who are also reportedly interested in signing Wallace this summer, so West Brom will need to act fast and offer an attractive deal to the player to push away competition and secure his signature as soon as possible.
