West Brom can land their next Livermore with Hamza Choudhury

West Bromwich Albion currently have a handful of players in their ranks that have hit the age of 30 such as David Button, Kyle Bartley and Matt Phillips.

One other player that is currently one of the oldest figures in Steve Bruce’s squad is Jake Livermore.

Which La Liga club did West Brom sign Okay Yokuslu on loan from in the 2021 January transfer window?

Back in the 2017 January transfer window, the Baggies signed the midfielder from Hull City in a deal worth a reported fee of around £10m after he brought an end to his time as a Tottenham Hotspur player in 2014.

During his time at the Hawthorns, the Englishman has gone on to make 195 appearances for the Midlands club across all competitions, scoring seven goals and providing 11 assists along the way.

As things stand, Livermore will be entering the final year of his current contract at West Brom at the end of the month.

With that in mind, it could be worth the club looking to bring in what could be a new and improved version of their long-serving veteran.

In fact, one player that the Baggies have been linked with recently that could fit that particular bill is Hamza Choudhury.

As a product of Leicester City’s youth system, the midfielder has made a total of 142 appearances across their senior and youth sides.

However, with just six starts under his belt from 12 appearances across all competitions this season, he doesn’t seem to have been able to make himself a regular first-team starter for Brendan Rodgers.

With that in mind, the prospect of playing regularly for the Baggies and potentially being their long-term replacement for Livermore could be rather tempting for the 24-year-old.

Praised for his “sensational” performances for Leicester by Rodgers, Choudhury is currently valued at £4.5m according to Transfermarkt.

Has Jake Livermore been a good signing for West Brom?

Yes

No

No

Having played in 79 domestic games throughout his career, the Foxes midfielder has racked up 69 interceptions and won 34 tackles, highlighting the defensive talent he has.

In comparison with the current West Brom midfielder, he was able to make 40 interceptions and win 44 tackles in his latest season alone.

This suggests that with a regular run of games under his belt and suitable coaching from Bruce, Choudhury could become a solid addition to the squad and grow into an ideal long-term version of Livermore.

Should an opportunity to take the Englishman away from the King Power Stadium arise this summer, then this is something that West Brom should definitely explore.
