Paul Robinson has revealed that he’s of the belief that Ahmed Musa is the player who can give West Bromwich Albion the cutting edge in attack needed beat the drop.
Sam Allardyce is a manager known for aquiring cast out footballers and turning them into a gem.
The former England gaffer during his time with Bolton Wanderers brought in established internationals like Austin Okocha, Gary Speed, Youri Djorkaeff, Fernando Hierro, and El Hadji Diouf.
Okocha was the highlight of Big Sam’s buy at the Reebok Stadium as the Nigerian singlehandedly helped Bolton beat the drop on a couple of times with his magnificent talent.
Robinson now opines that if Allardyce could have turned things around with Free Agents in the past he’d be able to do the same with former Leicester City forward Musa.
“Sam is very good at scouring the world and Europe in particular for free agents,” he told Football Insider.
“He finds players that he can just get that little bit out of, and sometimes that can be the difference.
“Musa is a very quick winger. I remember him even though he only played a handful of games for Leicester. He is an international, experienced player who might give West Brom some edge.
“Sam has said how difficult it is to pick up players in this window, but Musa could be a diamond.”
Musa left Saudi Arabian giants Al Nassr last summer and he’s been without a club since then. The Super Eagles skipper could complete his move to the Hawthorns in the next few days and would be a great addition to the forward line.
