Surely West Brom should be aiming higher than Burnley's Nahki Wells

West Bromwich Albion are reportedly keen on signing the Burnley man.

Nahki Wells of Burnley takes a look around the pitch prior to the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Burnley at Selhurst Park on January 13, 2018 in London, England.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, West Brom are eyeing a summer swoop for Burnley forward Nahki Wells, but the Baggies should surely be aiming higher than the Clarets hitman.

West Brom were woefully poor last season, and ended up finishing rock bottom of the Premier League table, despite their late surge following Alan Pardew's sacking and Darren Moore's subsequent appointment as caretaker manager.

The 44-year-old was recently handed the reigns at the Hawthorns on a permanent basis, and they will head into next season's Championship campaign in buoyant mood, in spite of their troubles last season.

One particular area where the Baggies have to improve is their centre-forward department, and according to the Daily Mail, Moore is keen on bringing Nahki Wells to the Hawthorns.

West Brom should proceed with caution, however...

Wells, 28, joined Burnley from Huddersfield Town in the summer of 2017, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £5 million, but he failed to establish himself at Turf Moor, failing to score a single goal in nine appearances.

His career record is hardly impressive either, with 106 goals in 286 appearances to his name.

If West Brom are to bounce straight back up to the Premier League this season, they absolutely must bring an established goalscorer into the club this summer.

With this in mind, they should avoid a move for Wells at all costs, and instead shift their focus elsewhere.
