West Brom: Ismael could solve big problem by signing Windass

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to add attacking quality to their side during the upcoming winter transfer window, especially now that Jordan Hugill is reportedly set to be recalled early by Norwich from his loan deal with the Baggies.

One player who has been linked with a move to the Hawthorns again is Josh Windass, who was previously tipped for a move to the club last year.

Windass currently plays for Sheffield Wednesday, despite signing a new contract in the summer and only recently coming back from injury, the 27-year-old has been linked to a number of clubs including Hull City, Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough, Stoke City and of course West Brom.

Since coming back from an injury a few weeks ago, the £1.8m-rated attacker has been making up for lost time by scoring twice and assisting once in his first three appearances, which will be pleasing to see for Valerien Ismael who really needs to find a player to add to his attacking third that can offer creativity and finds the back of the net confidently.

Sheffield Wednesday teammate, Barry Bannan, has already hailed the midfielder after speaking to the club’s media upon Windass’ return to the team after injury:

“Josh Windass is massive for us and a top, top player. He makes good runs, has pace and scores goals.” he said.

Ismael will be working to find solutions to the inconsistencies with goal scoring that the current West Brom side have been facing. Having scored just 29 times this term, 31 fewer than first placed Fulham, it has put them further back in the table with automatic promotion a big ask after a run of one win in their last five games.

However, the addition of Windass, somebody with 45 goals in the English Football League to his name, could prove extremely fruitful in turning their season around.

The Baggies have been linked with a number of attacking players already this season due to such a lack of goals, and have been reportedly scouting Windass since he has been back in action, which suggests he could be a strong candidate to be snapped up in January for the club.
