West Brom will be playing in the Championship next season.

The Baggies struggled in their first campaign back in the Premier League and their relegation was confirmed earlier this month.

One of the main reasons for their struggles was the lack of a top quality forward.

Karlan Grant was signed for big money last summer but has scored just one Premier League goal this campaign. Callum Robinson has also not been the answer to West Brom's problems.

Mbaye Diagne arrived in January on loan and has been impressive, but he is set to return to Galatasaray after the season ends.

So West Brom are in the market for a striker this summer. According to Goal, they have their sights set on a player on the books at Liverpool.

What are the latest West Brom transfer news?

It is reported that West Brom are keen on Liverpool loanee, Taiwo Awoniyi.

The Nigerian has spent the last six seasons on loan after failing to get a work permit.

West Brom are believed to have already held discussions with Liverpool over a potential move for the 23-year-old.
