West Bromwich Albion captain Jake Livermore has told the Express & Star that he believes new signings will help the club to get to where they want to be this season.
The Baggies are currently in fourth place as we reach the halfway stage of the campaign in the Sky Bet Championship and have struggled to score goals in their recent matches.
A recent defeat to Derby County has increased the pressure on both Valérien Ismaël and his players and they will know that they need to improve moving into the new year if they are to compete for one of the two automatic promotion spots.
Now Livermore has claimed that reinforcements are needed at the Hawthorns, as the midfielder discussed the upcoming transfer window recently:
“Now it’s about how we react, we need to propel ourselves to where we need to be.
“And January is coming as well, hopefully, the club has got plans and the manager has got plans and they will help us get to where we want to be.”
Quiz: Can you name which club West Brom sold these 26 players to?
West Brom are said to be in the market for a striker in January, whilst there has also been suggestions in some quarters that a central midfielder could also be on their wish list.
Meanwhile the likes of Robert Snodgrass and Jordan Hugill are seemingly set to depart the Hawthorns next month.
It is becoming abundantly clear that both the manager and his players want to see new signings being brought into the football club when January rolls around.
Livermore has suggested that it could help them in the long run and it is fair to say that things have gone stale for the Baggies in recent weeks.
The signing of a new striker is becoming more of a necessity by the game and it would be a massive shock if they didn’t get anyone in to fulfil that need.
In addition to that some other further signings wouldn’t go amiss at a time when the fixture list is very congested due to postponements.
