West Bromwich Albion aren’t short of strikers with Karlan Grant, Daryl Dike, Callum Robinson and Kenneth Zohore on the books, but Josh Holland believes the Baggies could bring in another centre-forward after releasing Andy Carroll this summer.

Steve Bruce’s men were 17th in the Championship for goals (52) while only three clubs in the league were shut out more times than Albion (18), so it’s clear their problem has been in attack. Holland says Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle could be the solution to their problem.

He told Give Me Sport: “I think Dwight Gayle is a very, very good option. Obviously with Andy Carroll going, they might want to replace him.” Gayle could be attainable after struggling for playing time at Newcastle this season, but he would need to push for a move as his deal has two years to run.

The 32-year-old joined Newcastle from Crystal Palace in 2016 and has gone on to make 122 appearances in all competitions, scoring 34 goals with 11 assists. In Gayle’s entire career, he’s been prolific in the Championship (59 goals and 16 assists from 100 games) but can’t seem to cut it in the Premier League (26 goals and seven assists from 145 games).

Gayle has played for West Brom before too, spending the 2018/19 campaign at the Hawthorns, but it remains to be seen if Bruce brings in another striker given his options.
