West Bromwich Albion will need to replace a number of key players this summer following their relegation to the Championship.

Amongst the key players that Darren Moore needs to replace during his first summer as West Brom boss is Claudio Yacob following the Argentinian's release from The Hawthorns in the wake of their relegation from the Premier League.

Yacob may not have always been the most impressive performer in the Baggies' side, but some may perhaps deem it to be a blow that he has left. 

He did receive plenty of praise towards the end of last season and he certainly gave the team a bit of bite in the middle of the park that Moore should certainly look at replacing before the new season starts.

And one player that West Brom should perhaps have their eye on is Everton midfielder Mo Besic, amid reports from Teamtalk that former Baggies boss Tony Pulis is keen to bring the Bosnian to the Riverside Stadium after his successful loan spell with Middlesbrough last season.

Signed for £4 million in 2014 - fee reported by the Liverpool Echo - Besic has never quite managed to establish himself as a fixture in the Toffees side, but was superb at Boro last term so would clearly be an asset for any Championship side.

If West Brom made a move, he would certainly provide that steel that Yacob has brought to the table in the past, and he does boast plenty of quality on the ball also, so he would not only be someone that Moore would be relying on to break up the play and provide the defence with support.

West Brom should be one of the favourites for promotion next season, but they arguably still need that tenacious, combative presence in the middle of the park and Besic could perhaps be a fantastic player to consider for that reason.
