Despite questions over his ability to step up to the Championship, Bradley Dack has continued to make a key contribution to Blackburn Rovers following their promotion at the end of last season.
Dack has topped the scoring charts for Rovers so far this season, finding the back of the net on 16 occasions for the Lancashire club, leading to plenty of speculation around the attacker’s future.
Blackburn will obviously be desperate to keep hold of their key man, but whether they will be able to do so is a different matter.
With that in mind, we look at three potential paths for Dack…
A move to West Brom
The Midlands club have reportedly been interested in Dack since last summer, and could renew their interest again as they look for an effective player to slot in behind their forwards.
The Baggies are desperate for a return to the Premier League, and even if they don’t make it through the play-offs this season, they would likely give Dack a better chance of reaching the top tier next season Rovers, who must first consolidate their place in the division following their recent relegation.
Push for a Premier League move
West Brom aren’t the only side to have taken an interest in Dack, with Premier League sides such as West Ham and Crystal Palace among those said to have been interested in the Rovers attacker.
Dack could potentially push for a move to the top tier immediately, and if a bid was to come in from a Premier League side, you feel Rovers would struggle to turn such an offer down.
You never know when a chance to play in the Premier League will come along, and Dack will be determined not to let such an opportunity to pass him by.
Stay as Blackburn’s main man
Wherever Dack goes, you can be sure he won’t be as much of a focal point as he is at Blackburn.
The 25-year-old may well prefer to remain at Ewood Park and continue to operate as the key man for Tony Mowbray’s side, rather than taking the risk of a move that could see him struggling for opportunities in comparison to what he is currently enjoying in the North West.
