#7 Rhian Brewster – LoanEmbed from Getty Images
The 20-year-old forward has been instrumental in Swansea’s successful late play-off push scoring 10 goals in 20 games.
Realistically, Albion would only be able to sign a player of Brewster’s potential on loan and hope that if Swansea fail to gain promotion, Liverpool would seek a Premier League club for Brewster, in order to continue his career development.
It’s reported that Albion were in for him in January, along with Leeds, but he chose Swansea because of his relationship with Steve Cooper, after their U17 World Cup triumph together.
#8 Alban Ajeti – 5mEmbed from Getty Images
After failing to impress in his first season at West Ham, Alban Ajeti has been identified as a potential attacking option for West Brom as they look for a recognised number nine.
Bilic tried to sign the 23 year-old Swiss striker in the summer 2019 window, but Ajeti opted for The Hammers, where he failed to register a goal or assist in 9 appearances.
Reports are that West Ham are looking to offload players from their hefty wage bill, Ajeti being one of those.
Albion are joined by Celtic in pursuit of the Swiss’ signature with rumors that their star man Odsonne Edouard could be moving south of the border.
#9 Josh Dasilva – Fee UnknownEmbed from Getty Images
Brentford’s Josh Dasilva is a player who not many had heard of before this season. However, with 10 goals and four assists he’s become one of the most complete midfielders in the division.
He offers something Albion could very much benefit from, legs in midfield and more importantly, goals from midfield.
If Brentford’s play off campaign fizzles out then he might be worth pursuing.
With the likes of Harper and Field likely to be loaned out, could Dasilva freshen the midfield combinations next season?
#10 Neil Etheridge – Fee UnknownEmbed from Getty Images
Whether you like him or not, you cannot deny that Sam Johnstone has had a mixed season inbetween the Albion goalposts. He’s a brilliant reflex shot stopper, but his lack of ariel dominance and poor communication with his back four are cause for concern moving forward.
Albion paid £4m for him from Manchester United in 2018, and would be unlucky not to recoup a large amount of that back should they wish to sell him.
Etheridge makes this shortlist after a difficult season with Cardiff. Last year he was the clubs player of the year in the Premier League, but since their relegation, he’s battled injuries and struggled to assert himself as their number one.
It may be a punt, but after much of this season sidelined, the Filipino International will be desperate for first team football next season.
