None of them.
This!!!
But purely for a bit of fun, if you had to pick 2 players from each of the current bottom six teams...
... I'm not necessarily promoting any of the players listed - although some could do a job for our squad - I was just  reflecting on the range of possible transfer candidates from lower-placed clubs.

I'd prefer to look at the younger 1st teamers of the top six in the Championship, rather than players from the bottom six in the Premiership. After all, apart from Jack, who else was chased from our bottom six squad of last season, and also do you think any of the players from the current bottom six would really enhance our squad?

I was gutted we couldn't keep Sam Johnstone at the time as he impressed me in his spell with us. However he hasn't kicked on and become the player I thought he would be.

He was in the England squad only last week! Brilliant shot stopper still. There are some very good players in those teams. McNeill would be a no brainer and maybe Egan at Sheff Utd. Bissouma at Brighton too.

Pretty much all premier league goalkeepers are brilliant shotstoppers, distribution and command of the area are far more important qualities to look at at this level and Johnstone isn't great at either, which is a big part of why the Baggies have the worst defensive record in the league.

see also Pope's piss-poor distribution for England.

I'd go for Saint-Maximin even if the Barcodes stay up.
