West Bromwich Albion Monitoring This Red Star Belgrade Forward: A Good Fit For The Baggies?

West Bromwich Albion are monitoring the progress of Red Star Belgrade striker, Richmond Boakye. It is being reported that the Baggies will send scouts to watch the player in action against Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday night. The Ghana international has also been tracked by Chelsea and Everton following his excellent form for club and country in this campaign.

The 24-year-old has hit a total of 17 goals for Red Star Belgrade and Ghana this season and has already been monitored by Chelsea scouts during his match against Arsenal earlier in the Europa League group-stages.

Boakye has shone for his club and has scored 14 goals in 13 appearances which includes a breathtaking winner versus Cologne. The 24-year-old had a two-year stint with Juventus following his departure from Genoa in 2012 but never got a run in their first team due to his underwhelming performances.

He has finally found his touch in Serbia after a series of loan moves that helped him develop as a player. Now, clubs from all across Europe are looking to boost their attacking options in January by securing his signature. This comes as a major turnaround for the Ghanaian as he’s finally close to fulfiling his true potential.

The Baggies are currently struggling in the Premier League and are winless in their last 14 league matches which have seen them slump to 17th place in the Premier League table. Their new boss Alan Pardew might be preparing himself for a January spending to help the club avoid the drop this season.

The West Midlands club has just secured two wins this season and are currently sitting just three points above the relegation zone with a game against fellow relegation strugglers Swansea City coming up on Saturday.

One of the major reasons why West Brom has struggled this season is due to the lack of goals scored by their strikers. The club has just managed to score 12 goals in 15 Premier League matches so far. Boakye has scored 18 goals alone for Red Star Belgrade in this campaign. It is no surprise that Alan Pardew would be interested in such a forward who has the potential to turn their fortunes for the better and save the Baggies from a possible relegation.

However, they face stiff competition from Chelsea and Everton so it won’t be easy for Pardew to convince the Ghanaian forward to put pen to paper in a deal with the West Midlands outfit.
