At the end of the season, West Brom appears to be well-positioned to be in the play-offs. However, the club might also be keeping an eye on the automatic promotion fight, since Leeds United’s advancement to the Premier League may benefit the Midlands team in terms of forward Joe Gelhardt.

As previously noted, West Brom has struggled in the transfer market this season, but that hasn’t stopped them from adding players.

Leeds United youngster targets position at centre of transfer speculation  in Daniel Farke's systemThe team had an opportunity to bolster their play-off campaign in January, and it appeared the Baggies were considering a potential trade for Joe Gelhardt.

After signing for Leeds United in 2020, Gelhardt left Wigan Athletic, although the player hasn’t had much success in his new home.

In January of this year, there were rumours of a potential short stay.

In January, the forward was strongly linked to Scottish powerhouses Celtic and Rangers; nevertheless, West Brom was also reported to have expressed interest in the Leeds player.

Regretfully, neither the player nor the club were able to secure a transfer; nonetheless, with summer quickly approaching, the Baggies might desire Leeds’ success to bolster their possible offer for Gelhardt.

Carlos Corberan and West Brom will be completely focused on winning the remaining Championship games in order to secure their spot in the play-offs and to get ready for them should they advance.

Although the summer transfer window may not yet be finalised, the Baggies may still hope to see Leeds United promoted to the Premier League if Joe Gelhardt remains a target for the team.

If this is the case, West Brom will be hoping Leeds finishes in the automatic spots because, should they make it that far, they will undoubtedly want to win through the play-offs.

There’s no assurance the Midlands side will rekindle their interest.

There is no guarantee that the Midlands side is going to revisit their interest in Gelhardt, but if they do, Leeds being back in the top flight will strengthen their cause.

The 21-year-old has struggled for regular minutes this season in the second tier, with him appearing just eight times so far, two of which have come as starts.

The forward is averaging just 23 minutes on the pitch, so it may not come as much of a surprise to see that he has failed to score in the league so far and has done very little in front of goal.

Gelhardt has averaged 0.4 shots per game, but 0.1 are on target, and he has had only 10.5 touches of the ball and has created no big chances for the club, as per Sofascore.com.

The young striker’s only success this season has been in the EFL Cup, as he started both games and managed to grab a single goal.

Therefore, even if Leeds are promoted this season, his struggles to get playing time in the Championship are unlikely to improve.

Gelhardt will likely fall lower down the hierarchy as Daniel Farke looks to bolster his team. Bringing in a new forward could be a top priority once more.

Although they won’t say it aloud, West Brom and Corberan might be hoping Leeds wins the title between now and the conclusion of the campaign, defeating Southampton, Ipswich Town, and Leicester City, in order to have a good chance of acquiring Gelhardt in the summer.
