Sky Bet Championship

West Brom set to make January move for in-demand Liverpool man

Published

Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn is attracting the attention of Championship promotion chasers West Brom.

The young forward is back at Anfield following a failed loan spell with Sheffield United, and the Reds are keen to ensure Woodburn does indeed get some game time this season, with a number of Championship clubs interested in taking him.

However, according to the Mirror, it is Albion who potentially lead the race for Woodburn, with Baggies manager Darren Moore looking to replace the departed Harvey Barnes, who was recalled by parent club Leicester City last week.

Woodburn is highly thought of at Anfield but saw his time with Sheffield United not come to anything as he struggled to break into Chris Wilder’s side with the Blades flying high in the Championship and Wilder being pretty much settled on his best XI.

A move to the Baggies might well prove fruitful for the young forward though, with Moore’s men also chasing promotion themselves and playing an expansive brand of attacking football.

Woodburn will be desperate to show what he can do too, and if given the chance by West Brom, might well jump at the chance of a move to the Midlands to show his stuff.

The Verdict

There must be a player in there with Woodburn, but there also has to be a reason why Chris Wilder didn’t select him at Bramall Lane.

However, if Darren Moore thinks he can get the best out of him and is going to give him regular game time, then it might well just work out for Woodburn if he does make the move to the Hawthorns.
