Steve Bruce plans to line up in a 4-4-2 formation at West Bromwich Albion next season and wants to bring in more attacking talent as the Baggies were 17th in the Championship for goals (52).

Karlan Grant (18 goals and 6 assists in 44 league games) and Callum Robinson (7 goals and 9 assists in 43 league games) can rotate between playing up front and on the left flank, but Bruce might have an issue on the right.

Adam Reach has often operated in the role but hasn’t set the place alight in his debut season (2 goals and 2 assists in 34 league games), so he might need upgrading.

Steve Madeley of The Athletic says West Brom may have identified his successor – Jed Wallace. The 28-year-old has scored six goals with 12 assists from 38 league games at Millwall but is out of contract this summer.

His preferred position is on the right flank and West Brom are making a concerted effort to sign him on a free transfer, so Wallace might push the 29-year-old out of the team next season.

Bruce could have a goal-laden side for their promotion push if he lands all his transfer targets, but West Brom unsurprisingly won’t be the only team interested in Wallace given his form in 2021/22 and unattached status.
