Report: West Brom target ‘senior goalkeeper’ in summer transfer window

West Brom

West Brom are keen on signing a new goalkeeper this summer.

According to the Birmingham Mail, West Brom are targeting a senior goalkeeper above all other positions this summer, as they look to strengthen.

Tony Pulis is undergoing his first pre-season at the Hawthorns, and his first real transfer window, having only arrived at the club in January. He is keen to revamp the squad, and the report states that along with attacking players, signing a goalkeeper is of major importance.

Ben Foster is currently first-choice stopper, but a long-term injury has ruled the 32-year-old out until October next season.

Boaz Myhill is deputising for him at the moment, but his deal expires at the end of this season. The club have an option to automatically trigger a one year extension, but there is no confirmation as to whether they will see this through.

Due to this situation, Pulis is targeting a goalkeeper in the summer transfer window, and is looking to secure a signing at the earliest opportunity.

This is not to say that other areas of the squad are being overlooked, as improving the attacking play is also high on the agenda. The same report references the long standing interest in a wealth of attacking players, that Pulis may look to see through this transfer window.

Andre-Pierre Gignac, Michail Antonio, Bakary Sako and Matt Phillips are all name-checked as players who have been shortlisted as potential summer signings.
