West Bromwich Albion are interested in securing the services of Portsmouth’s Jamal Lowe this summer, a source close to West Brom has exclusively informed Football League World.
Albion secured their Championship play-off place on Easter Monday, despite being held to a goalless draw with Reading.
It appears now as though the Albion hierarchy have already started preparing for next season, regardless of whether they are plying their trade in the Premier League or not.
Lowe has been a stand-out performer for Portsmouth this season, as the south-coast side have challenged for automatic promotion in League One under Kenny Jackett’s leadership.
The sharp winger has made a solid contribution to Pompey’s season, scoring 14 goals and registering nine assists in League One.
The former Hampton & Richmond star has earned wide plaudits for the damage he has been able to inflict on League One defences, with many fans suggesting he should play higher up the EFL ladder.
Although, West Brom’s attempted signing of him hinges heavily on whether Portsmouth seal promotion to the Championship. This would then make it very difficult to lure Lowe away from the club.
So would this be a good signing for West Brom? We discuss…
“This would be an excellent signing to add to what is already an impressive West Brom attack.
“Lowe has been exceptional for Pompey ever since his step-up from non-league, and has been so important for them in their League One promotion push this season.
“It would take a lot lure him away from Fratton Park, though.”
“This’d be a very smart signing.
“Lowe has been terrific for Portsmouth this season and clearly has what it takes to play at the top of the second tier.
“He may cost a fair bit, but it would well worth it.”
“This would be a good signing for West Brom.
“You feel that West Brom are going to need to strengthen themselves when it comes to goal threats next season whatever division they are in, particularly with the future of Dwight Gayle still up in the air.
“Lowe’s form this season shows that he can do just that for them.”
