Leeds: Tyler Roberts

Leeds are unlikely to do business with fellow promotion winners but if Albion were going to sign a player from Leeds, it may well be former Baggie Tyler Roberts.

The 21-year-old is valued at around £4m and could plausibly make a return to The Hawthorns after a successful spell in Yorkshire.

Roberts scored four times this season for Leeds and is still highly rated by those in the top jobs in West Bromwich, so although a return to the Hawthorns is unlikely, as is the transfer for any Leeds player to the Hawthorns, if anyone was going to join Albion, realistically it would be the Welsh forward.


Liverpool: Ovie Ejaria

The former Reading loanee, Ovie Ejaria, bossed the midfield at the Hawthorns last season and could do the same again this season if Albion attempt to sign the Liverpool man on loan.

With over 50 Championship games under his belt, only time will tell if he is ready for the step up; however, the midfielder could have the legs to be the box-to-box player Albion need in the centre of the park due to his young age and natural agility.

Having said that, a move for Ejaria would be unlikely as Bilic is looking to sign more experienced players like Ljajic and Tufan instead.


Man City: Patrick Roberts

The 23-year-old midfielder joined Man City in 2015 from Fulham and has had a series of loans since then, but has failed to showcase what he’s capable of yet.

However, if given the opportunity, Roberts may still be able to prove that he’s worth the £10m Man City spent on him five years ago.

After loan spells with Celtic, Girona, Norwich and Middlesbrough, the once promising youngster’s career may look dead and buried, but Bilic may see potential in Roberts and if the Baggies were able to acquire him for a reasonable amount, most fans would probably see the deal as good business.

Moreover, the signing of Ferran Torres will mean that Roberts drops down the pecking order even more, so a move away would be ideal for him now if he wants to prevent his career from languishing.


Manchester United: Jesse Lingard

A name that has been linked with the Baggies, the 27-year-old England international may leave Old Trafford in order to find gametime, and United would likely approve a move as it would fund the signing of Jadon Sancho.

The Sun reported the ambitious plot and as United are willing to sell, it looks likely Lingard may leave United.

However, Albion have more irons in the fire, including Eberechi Eze and Adem Ljajic, which would reduce the likelihood of Albion signing Lingard, and this, coupled with his high wages, makes a deal not only unlikely but rather unappealing too.
