Report: West Brom needs to make the most of the Rangers news by completing a summer transfer raid for a midfield player

Whatever happens, West Bromwich Albion fans should have a thrilling summer. That goes double for promotion to the Premier League.

Due to former owner Guochuan Lai’s lack of financial support, the Baggies have had difficult transfer windows in the past. As a result, Carlos Corberan has been looking for loan agreements and free transfers to bolster the team. And whoever did show up was probably working for a rather low salary.

Shilen Patel’s arrival should, fortunately for Albion, allow the boss more leeway in the marketplace. It will be interesting to watch what kind of business they can accomplish under the new leadership.

Lundstram should be the goal for West Brom.

Across the nation, recruitment teams are facing a challenging period since many teams are unsure of the division they will play in the upcoming season. Albion is one of those clubs that needs to plan ahead.

John Lundstram, a midfielder for the Rangers, is one player who would be a good match for West Brom in either division, though.

Albion has to take advantage of the fact that the 30-year-old’s contract at Ibrox expires in the summer and that he is allegedly holding out for a new agreement.

Lundstram is a very excellent player at his best, and with his attributes, he might develop under Corberan’s tutelage.

Although his goals and assists may not make the headlines, anybody who has watched the former Sheffield United player play for Rangers knows that he is their main player in the middle of the park.

He is a true leader for the Glasgow team, one who will not back down and plays with intensity.

He possesses the physicality necessary to compete with the greatest defensive midfielders, and he knows how to position himself efficiently to thwart danger.

Lundstram’s career with Rangers has been filled with ups and downs, but it’s no accident that he has had many of his best moments on the grander stage.

He has performed exceptionally well in Europe, where Rangers are frequently the underdog. He enjoys playing the hard yards, winning back the ball, and leading the team when necessary.

The FA has charged West Brom for the crowd disturbances that occurred during their FA Cup loss to Wolves in January.

His commitment to defense and, to be fair, the occasional big goal were crucial to the team’s success on big evenings against teams like RB Leipzig, Braga, and Borussia Dortmund.

John Lundstram’s prospects.

In the end, the player has placed himself in a situation where he can choose his next course of action, and it is clear that continuing with the Rangers is appealing.

This season, there’s a genuine opportunity to win the league, which will assure Champions League play.

John Lundstram’s Rangers career so far (Transfermarkt)
Season Appearances League position Scottish Cup League Cup Europe
2021/22 48 2nd Winners Semi-Final Europa League Runners-Up
2022/23 52 2nd Semi-Final Runners-Up Champions League Group Stage
2023/24 (as of March 14th) 43 1st Semi-Final (vs Hearts) Winners Europa League L16

Nevertheless, there’s no doubting the intensity of playing in Glasgow for any team, and Lundstram might believe he has accomplished everything north of the border.

Therefore, it may be in the cards for him to return to England. West Brom would be the perfect team to give him the playing time he needs, and it would be a coup for the Baggies to sign him for free.

Adding some talent to the ranks will be the goal this summer for Albion, whatever of the league they play in, and Lundstram would be a good match because of his apparent fit with Corberan’s approach.
