Report: West Brom eye Wigan left-back Antonee Robinson
West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Antonee Robinson, but The Sun has suggested that the Baggies will need to get across the line in the promotion race if they hope to land the left-back.
Slaven Bilic’s side remain in a fantastic position in the Championship. The Baggies are second with three games remaining.
And it appears that they are making plans in case they do manage to secure their return to the Premier League.
The Sun reports that West Brom are interested in Wigan Athletic defender Robinson. It is suggested however, that they face competition from Leicester City should the Foxes lose Ben Chilwell.
The Sun has also reported that Chilwell is being linked with a £60 million move away from the King Power Stadium this summer.
That arguably says a lot about Robinson’s potential if Brendan Rodgers is eyeing him up as a potential replacement.
Of course, Robinson’s future has been up in the air for some time. As reported by the Daily Mirror, he saw a £10 million move to AC Milan fall through in January.
With Wigan recently entering administration, the Latics reportedly need to sell some of their players in the near future.
Losing the USA international would be a big blow given his potential.
But his admirers may, perhaps reluctantly, view the situation as a good opportunity to land a very bright talent for what may prove to be a reasonable fee.
