Baggies-focused website West Brom News recently published an article sharing that the club are allegedly “in pursuit” of Lyle Taylor, with the 30-year-old attacker currently set to leave Charlton Athletic at the end of this month.
At the beginning of June, Charlton boss Lee Bowyer spoke to TalkSPORT confirming that Taylor, whose contract is set to expire on 30th June, is one of three Addicks players to decide not to rejoin the club for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign.
This report from West Brom News cites information that recently emerged from Sky Sports who have claimed that in addition to drawing interest from West Brom, the 30-year-old attacker has also received a “lucrative offer” from Turkish club Sivasspor.
While they state that the Baggies have shown interest in signing Taylor, this report from West Brom News questions whether the club will be prepared to match the alleged “lucrative offer” that Sivasspor have presented to Taylor. This report also questions whether the attacker would make a significant improvement to the Baggies’ attacking options.
Would Lyle Taylor be a good signing for West Brom?
However, the 30-year-old, who has six caps at international level for Montserrat, is yet to play in the Premier League so far in his career and with the Baggies currently sitting in second place on the Championship table, it may be fair to say that they are in a positive position to achieve promotion to the Premier League for next season at present. With that in mind, it may be wise for them to target players with experience of playing in England’s top-flight instead of Taylor, who is unproven at that level.
