“Looks like an exciting player” – West Brom looking to beat Celtic to transfer deal: Opinion



West Bromwich Albion are reportedly interested in signing Houston Dynamo attacker Alberth Elis.

The 22-year-old is currently one of the brightest talents in the MLS, having scored 21 goals and produced 14 assists in 56 games for the American side, with Houston valuing their star-man at a price of around £5million.

The Baggies, who are looking for another exciting option in attack following the departure of Harvey Barnes, will have to face strong competition in the pursuit of Elis, with Celtic and Fenerbache also interested in signing the Honduran winger.

Here, we discuss if Elis is a good signing for Albion.

George Harbey

“Elis looks to be an incredibly talented player on paper, who could be a fantastic signing for Albion.

“He can play either out wide or up front, making him a very interesting option for Darren Moore.

“They are already so good in attack, but this could be the signing that secures a promotion spot come the end of the season.”

Chris Gallagher

“He looks like an exciting player.

“His goal and assists return are very good for someone who is only 22-years-old and he has the potential to get even better.

“Albion need a direct, quick option out wide and Elis looks like he could be a perfect fit.”

Louie Chandler

“It could be a very sly signing.

“Whilst the rest of the Championship are largely looking to land domestic talent, moving across the pond could be a clever tactic.

“His statistics are impressive and if he can carry that into the Championship it would be a huge help to the Baggies.”
