Liam Delap and Daryl Dike Reportedly On West Bromwich Albion’s Radar

Ismael’s Side in Need of a Striker

With the transfer window shortly closing, West Bromwich Albion are on the hunt for a striker. Their search has now created a shortlist with Liam Delap and Daryl Dike on that list.

Dike is a familiar face for manager Valerien Ismael. The American played under Ismael last season during a loan spell at Barnsley. The 20-year-old scored nine goals in 19 appearances for the Tykes as they reached the Championship play-off semi-finals.

This signing would perhaps be most ideal, as there is an existing relationship between Dike and Ismael. Also, not forgetting that the striker had a strong showing in the Championship last season. The young American left a lasting impression during a brief spell, so there could be a lot more to come from the Orlando City player.

On the other hand, Liam Delap is also reportedly being targeted by the club. The Manchester City youngster has slowly been touted for a bright future. The 18-year-old has scored 24 goals in 22 games in the Premier League 2 as well as eight goals in 18 Premier League U18 appearances.

The England U19 international made one first-team appearance last season. He came off the bench to feature for City in their 5-2 defeat to Leicester City. Despite not yet being given a chance to prove himself, a loan move to West Brom could be ideal for both parties.

However, considering Dike has already been somewhat successful, even during a brief stint in the second-tier, perhaps his best days could be ahead at The Hawthorns.

It could be a case of going for a young prospect and taking a chance or going for what the manager knows.
