West Bromwich Albion are currently top of the Championship table and have put themselves in an excellent position to win promotion to the Premier League.
However, head coach Slaven Bilic is still keen to strengthen his attacking options in the January transfer window and remains on the lookout for a new striker, with Birmingham Live reporting that Huddersfield Town’s Karlan Grant is a target.
The 22-year-old has been a key player for Huddersfield so far this season and has scored twelve goals in 27 Championship appearances for the Terriers, despite his side struggling in the bottom half of the table.
Here are THREE qualities that Grant would bring to West Brom if he were to join the Baggies…
Grant has scored twelve goals for Huddersfield in the Championship so far this season, which is very impressive when you consider that the Terriers have been struggling in the bottom half of the table.
Meanwhile, Charlie Austin and Hal Robson-Kanu have both scored seven league goals for West Brom this season, while Kenneth Zohore has scored three.
When you consider that West Brom have some very exciting and creative attacking players in there side, the likes of Matheus Pereira and Grady Diangana, you imagine that Grant would get more chances to score goals for Albion that he does for Huddersfield.
He’s a very good finisher, so he could be able to score the goals to fire West Brom to promotion.
Grant is also very quick, which is not something you can say about the likes of Robson-Kanu or Austin.
If he were to move to West Brom, he’d be providing Albion with some more pace in attack, which can only be a good thing, especially when you consider how dangerous their attack is already.
He possesses very sharp movement and would be a great fit for their style of attacking football under Bilic.
Youth in attack
Grant is 22 and he’s already a fantastic striker who has proven that he can score goals in the Championship and the Premier League.
He’s got his best years ahead of him and you imagine that he will continue to improve as he gains more experience.
QUIZ: Can you name these 14 ex-West Brom strikers?
He would provide West Brom with some more youth in attack and would be also make a great long-term replacement for Robson-Kanu and Austin, who are both now 30.
