Should West Brom consider re-signing Morgan Amalfitano following West Ham exit?

Amalfitano

Amalfitano left West Ham earlier this week, so should West Brom attempt to re-sign him?

Amalfitano had been outcast at West Ham this season by Slaven Bilic, and he officially left the club earlier this week when his contract was cancelled by mutual consent - confirmed on the Hammers' official website.

He is currently without a side, but due to the Frenchman’s talents, it will not be long before a host of clubs are approaching him concerning securing his signature.

However, there is one Premier League side who should consider moving for Amalfitano - and a team who have previously seen the winger play for them.

West Brom had Amalfitano on loan in the 2013/14 season, when he scored four goals in 28 Premier League games in what was his first experience of English football.

The 30-year-old impressed during his time with the club, and many wanted to see the Baggies keep hold of the winger when his loan spell ended, having performed well in an underperforming team.

Now that he is available again, West Brom could do with a player of Amalfitano’s talents to call upon.

Tony Pulis always uses wingers in a 4-4-2 system, and he has a large selection of players to use currently at the Hawthorns. The likes of James McClean, Callum McManaman, Chris Brunt and James Morrison can all play those roles, but none of them possess the same skill set as Amalfitano.

He possesses pace, trickery, an eye for goal, and most importantly, he does not seem fazed by the opposition on show, and this kind of attitude is needed in West Brom’s squad, who often look pressured when coming up against good opposition.

The Baggies need someone to add a creative threat to their side, and it could be that Amalfitano will return to the Hawhtorns, as a budget - and wise - signing in the coming weeks.
