Why West Brom must beat Ipswich Town to sign Collin Quaner
As per a report from East Anglian Daily Times, Ipswich Town are interested in Huddersfield Town outcast Collin Quaner as they look to boost their survival chances.
Collin Quaner, 27, arrived at Huddersfield Town in January 2017 from Union Berlin and played a crucial role in the club’s promotion to the top-flight. He went on to make 26 Premier League appearances last term as the Terriers narrowly avoided the drop.
However, the Dusseldorf-born forward has fallen out of favour under David Wagner and has managed just two substitute appearances till date this season. With Collin Quaner finding himself way down the pecking order at Huddersfield, a short-term move could be beneficial for him.
That being said, West Brom must beat Ipswich Town to Quaner’s signature this month. West Brom are fourth in the table, five points off league leaders Leeds United after 26 games. The Baggies are already looking for promotion to the top-flight at the first time of asking.
They look determined to get back to the Premier League and have already shown the ambition in the transfer market by quickly signing Mason Holgate on loan from Everton. Holgate, who has moved to the Hawthorns on loan until the end of the season, made his West Brom debut in the FA Cup win over Wigan.
Darren Moore has done a solid job by reinforcing his defence with the signing of Holgate. He needs to now focus on the other end of the pitch and bring in an attacker. In Dwight Gayle, Jay Rodriguez, Hal Robson-Kanu and Bakary Sako, West Brom have enough firepower up front but another addition won’t do much harm for Moore.
Injuries and suspensions are a part and parcel of the game and Moore has to keep his team well-stocked in every department to avoid any crisis for the crucial second half of the season.
The signing of Collin Quaner would give West Brom a different flavour in the attack. Alongside Gayle and Rodriguez’s finishing abilities and Sako’s powerful presence, Quaner will give Moore an extra weapon from the bench. The likes of Matt Phillips and Kieran Gibbs will lick their lips at the prospect of having of the 6ft 3in Quaner in the box.

Hence, signing Quaner could be the perfect move for the Baggies, at least until the end of the season.
