West Bromwich Albion manager, Steve Clarke, may make the scoop of the season if he can convince Swedish international striker, Markus Rosenberg, to join the Hawthorns outfit.

Rosenberg is a free agent, after leaving German club, Werder Bremen, at the end of last season, and is reportedly in England looking to pen a deal with the Baggies.

Should Clarke do enough to convince Rosenberg into signing a contract, he may have sealed West Brom’s Premier League status for a few more years.

For Rosenberg has proven his ability to lead the line in one of Europe’s top leagues. The 29-year-old made 123 appearances for Bremen, scoring 40 goals in the process. His six goals for Sweden further expose his international pedigree.

At 6 ft 1”, the striker could be what West Brom need to boost their scoring prowess this season.

Under former boss, Roy Hodgson, Albion were often guilty of spurning chances and playing conservatively. Although their style played to their strengths, Baggies fans will be hoping for more attacking flair this season.

Having already acquired midfield threat, Claudio Yacob, Clarke is developing a squad fit for Premier League mid-table security, and maybe even more if they get off to a good start this autumn.

Rosenberg’s presence in the squad would only serve to benefit a side in transition, and his international pedigree would further boost the confidence of those around him.

Both Peter Odemwingie and Shane Long have looked good in pre-season this summer, and are expected to provide Albion with the majority of their goals this term.

Yet their combined 19 goals last season does need to see a drastic improvement if West Brom are to improve on their 10th place last term, and Rosenberg may be just the man to do it.

Elsewhere in the Premier League, fans may be surprised to hear of the inclusion of Tottenham youngsters in an experimental England squad. For more information, visit the Betfair football website:
