Sheyi Ojo is a name that always crops up around the Championship each time the transfer window opens.
Over the last three years, he has had spells at Wolves, Wigan and Fulham with the latest coming during the Whites’ promotion-winning campaign last season.
They have all been loan spells, but it looks like the 21-year-old may be about to leave Liverpool on a permanent basis with West Brom the current favourites for his signature.
The Reds reportedly want £15million for the winger with Darren Moore and co. currently weighing up whether it is worth the fee or not.
He has made 50 appearances in the Championship in total, scoring six goals and assisting five more in those games.
Moore will still be keen to bolster his attacking options at the Hawthorns, with a new winger high on his list.
But would the Liverpool youngster be a good signing for the Baggies?
Yes, it could well be.
He has featured in Liverpool’s pre-season and has been linked with clubs elsewhere.
West Brom are building a side that looks to be solid and compact in the Championship with the fair up top to hurt teams.
Ojo fits into that category and would be a useful outlet for the Baggies this season.
Hell yeah! Ojo wasn’t instrumental at Fulham but he played his part and he can influence games with his trickery and guile.
Anyone signing Sheyi Ojo this summer will improve their squad. Darren Moore would certainly be at the head of a decent sized queue if he pulls it off.
He’d make them title contenders.
He’ll be a decent asset but the Baggies need to be careful how much they pay out.
We’re talking serious money even in this modern market and the Baggies need to think long and hard.
Ojo has undoubted talent but he needs to show that he can consistently perform at this level.
For Fulham, he showed glimpses of his ability but could not maintain his performance levels over the course of the whole season.
West Brom have some great options out wide and Ojo might struggle to break into the first-team there.
Whilst West Brom are likely to go into the new season as title contenders, the signing of Ojo might just make that become a reality.
Ojo is a terrific young talent with potential to make it at the very highest level, and given the opportunity in the starting 11, could shine for Darren Moore’s side.
Do they need him?
Ojo seems better playing from the right and Albion have Matt Phillips, Oliver Burke and Jonathan Leko who can play in that role. I’d look elsewhere even though he is a talented player.
