West Brom's best new starting XI if the transfer rumours come true - including Premier League wonderkid and 14-goal striker

If the transfer rumours come true, Carlos Corberan could form this starting lineup for West Brom by the start of February.

West Bromwich Albion have made an impressive start to the 2023/24 season, cementing themselves as Championship play-off contenders and looking likely to be top-six finishers. Three points currently separate Albion from seventh-placed Sunderland, while six teams are within half a dozen points, meaning consistency must be maintained to keep position.

Carlos Corberan has done a superb job to first steady the ship and then push the football club in the right direction, but injuries to key players have halted his progress. West Brom don't have a huge budget but there may be no choice but to make a few new signings in January.

Transfer speculation hasn't been as rife as usual for this time of year but there are still some rumours emerging to get an idea of who Albion could end up bringing in. With that in mind, we've taken a look through the latest to form a potential starting XI for the start of February.
