Darren Moore has a lot of work to do at the Hawthorns this summer, if he is to guide his West Brom side to an immediate return back to the Premier League.

The Baggies endured a miserable campaign last season - one that culminated in their relegation down to the Championship, although they did show signs of life when Moore took charge with seven games remaining.

One particular area where the West Brom boss will be looking to strengthen is his attacking department, with an injection of pace needed this summer.

With this in mind, the Baggies should consider a move for Leicester hitman Ahmed Musa, with the Nigerian facing an uncertain future at the King Power Stadium.

The 25-year-old joined the Foxes from CSKA Moscow in the summer of 2016, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £16.6 million, but he failed to establish himself in the Premier League.

It could be argued that he wasn't given ample opportunity to shine, however, and he still has a lot to offer at the very highest level.

Musa spent the second half of last season on loan with CSKA, and performed admirably, scoring six goals in 10 league outings for the Russian outfit.

The Nigerian possesses blistering pace - something that West Brom have been desperately bereft of in the final third, and he would surely add a certain level of potency to the Baggies' attacking play.

Whether Leicester will be willing to sell Musa remains to be seen, but considering the fact that West Brom are not direct rivals this season, they could very well be tempted into doing business.
