West Brom open to offers for forgotten man, but he could yet earn a first-team lifeline

West Brom are willing to listen to offers for striker Kenneth Zohore but if he stays, Steve Bruce could yet hand him a first-team lifeline, The Athletic’s Elias Burke has reported.

West Brom brought Danish striker Zohore to The Hawthorns in the summer of 2019. The move came after a three-year spell on the books with Cardiff City, during which he netted 24 goals and laid on 11 assists in 101 games.

The striker’s time with the Baggies has been one to forget though. He has struggled for game time, playing only 23 times in three years while also enduring a poor stint on loan with Millwall.

After another difficult season in which he played for the U23s than the first-team, The Athletic’s Elias Burke has now said the Championship club are open to offers for the out of favour striker.

However, it is said that if a move away doesn’t materialise, Bruce is willing to give him the chance to get back on track with West Brom.

What’s next for Zohore?

The Copenhagen-born striker is now in the final year of his contract with West Brom, so the club’s current stance on his future makes sense.

Either he moves on this summer while they can still land a fee for his services or he gets the chance to prove himself and fight for a new deal at The Hawthorns, so it will be interesting to see how his situation pans out.

He has shown before that he has the ability to be a nuisance at Championship level, previously enjoying success with former club Cardiff City.

However, if a move away doesn’t materialise, he will have to grasp the chance to impress in the upcoming campaign, or else free agency could await next summer.
