The Baggies may be pursuing attacking reinforcements during this month's transfer window, given that Rickie Lambert has struggled since his own move from Liverpool in the summer, whilst confusion still surrounds Saido Berahino's future at The Hawthorns.
Now, The Mirror report that manager Tony Pulis is plotting a shock move to re-sign Liverpool forward Jerome Sinclair, who left the club almost five years ago.
Sinclair, 19, was born in Birmingham and started his career with West Brom at the age of nine, before earning his move to Liverpool in 2011, aged just 14.
Since then, plenty of hype has surrounding Sinclair and his possible impact at Liverpool, especially when he made his first-team debut - ironically against West Brom - in the Capital One Cup in 2012, becoming the Reds' youngest ever player at 16 years and six days.
Now though, Sinclair's future at Liverpool is in doubt, as his contract expires at the end of the season. Having hit his first senior goal for the Reds in the FA Cup tie against Exeter last weekend, Sinclair is now in-demand - and could return to West Brom.
It's stated that Watford are also pursuing Sinclair, with Liverpool allegedly willing to sell this month before his contract expires, but West Brom will be hoping that the 19-year-old's history with the Baggies will lead him back to The Hawthorns in a shock coup for Pulis and co.
Should Sinclair re-sign for West Brom?
