3 players West Brom could cash in on this summer to bump up their transfer budget



West Bromwich Albion are on the verge of sealing an automatic promotion to the Premier League when and if the 2019/2020 season returns.

Given the green light for players to return to training from May 25, Baggies fans are growing excited over a potential return to fixtures, seeing their side sit behind Leeds United in second place.

With the likely potential of top-flight football at the Hawthorns next season, boss Slaven Bilic will no doubt be thinking about his squad for the 2020/2021 season and that will undoubtedly see a number of ins and outs over the summer period.

Grady Diangana (West Ham United), Callum Robinson (Sheffield United) and Filip Krovinovic (Benfica) will all leave when the season finishes, seeing their one-year loan spells come to an end, and that will mean Bilic will have to spend, losing three key players.

But, who could the Croatian manager sell to bump up his transfer fund…

Matt Phillips

In truth, former Blackpool winger Phillips started the season in superb form and was a key player for the Baggies over the first six months of the season, but the arrival of Robinson and the emergence of Krovinovic saw the 29-year-old struggle for minutes.

Seven goals and five assists in 37 appearances in the Championship make Phillips a good option for anyone moving forward and it remains to be seen if he can win his place back at West Brom and perhaps, play a part in Bilic’s side next season in the Premier League.

Valued at just under £5m by Transfermarkt, Phillips could potentially bring in that figure to give Bilic some much needed cash.

Kenneth Zohore

Signing for West Brom last summer from Cardiff City on a £8.01m transfer fee, Bilic would have hoped to have seen the 26-year-old striker score a lot more goals and push for more minutes on the pitch this term.

However, the Danish international has scored just three goals in 15 games, playing behind the likes of Hal Robson-Kanu and Charlie Austin.

Whilst it is unlikely that the Baggies will be able to recoup a similar transfer fee that they paid for Zohore, potential clubs in the Championship could pay around £5m for the striker, a little more than his decreasing £3.6m valuation over on Transfermarkt.

Ahmed Hegazi

29-year-old defender Hegazi is a strong performer for West Brom, but he has found playing time hard to come by this season due to the form of Kyle Bartley and Semi Ajayi.

Just 10 league appearances this term have questioned whether or not Hegazi will remain through to next season at the club, and a potential sale could hand Bilic £4m-£5m.

The centre-back is currently valued by Transfermarkt at just over £3m, but given his experience and talent, West Brom could push for slightly more.
