In the midst of discussions regarding a potential club sale, West Bromwich Albion has defied expectations under manager Carlos Corberan, currently standing seventh in the Championship, narrowly outside the top six on goal difference. Corberan’s adept management is particularly commendable, considering the challenges faced during a challenging summer transfer window at The Hawthorns.
Despite a modest intake of three players during the summer transfer window and the departure of key players like Dara O’Shea and Jake Livermore, West Brom finds itself in contention for a play-off spot. The prospect of a club sale could inject much-needed financial support, potentially paving the way for a significant addition to bolster their attack in the upcoming January transfer window.
TeamTalk reports that West Brom is eyeing a move to sign Kwame Poku, a left-footed winger who has made a significant impact at Peterborough United in League One. Poku’s stellar form, leading the League One assist chart with six, coupled with six goals, has attracted interest from multiple clubs, including Sunderland, Millwall, Ipswich Town, Bristol City, and Stoke City.
Poku, a 22-year-old with 12 goal involvements in 16 league games this season, has demonstrated the potential for success in the Championship. Having already made his international debut for Ghana, Poku’s readiness to elevate his performance at the club level positions him as a desirable prospect for West Brom. However, with other clubs reportedly vying for Poku’s services, West Brom may need to act swiftly to secure the winger.
Poku’s impressive rise, from his time at Colchester United, has garnered praise, including commendation from former U’s manager John McGreal.
McGreal highlighted Poku’s versatility across different positions and expressed confidence in the player’s bright future if he continues to listen and learn. As West Brom aims to strengthen its squad for a potential promotion push, the pursuit of Kwame Poku could play a pivotal role in their aspirations.
