Zohore in profile

19 July 2019

Kenneth Zohore arrives at The Hawthorns after spending three years with Cardiff City, including a promotion to the Premier League with the Bluebirds.

The 6ft 2in Danish striker has 23 Sky Bet Championship goals to his name, with two-and-a-half seasons worth of playing experience at that level, before clocking up 20 Premier League appearances last term.

Kenneth made his debut at the age of 16 years and 35 days old, becoming the youngest player ever to do so in the Danish Superliga.

Still aged 16, Zohore played for Copenhagen against Barcelona at the Nou Camp and in-turn became one of the youngest players ever to play in the Champions League.

Zohore would sign for Fiorentina on his 18th birthday, but never made an appearance for the Italian club.

Loan spells at Brøndby and IFK Göteborg between 2013 and 2014 would follow, before sealing a return to his home nation with Odense Boldklub.

In 2016, Kenneth joined Cardiff on loan during the transfer window before signing permanently in the summer.

The Dane’s first full season in English football yielded 12 goals in 30 appearances for the Bluebirds.

The following campaign saw Kenneth play 39 games as Cardiff gained automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Last term, Zohore gained top-flight experience for the Welsh outfit and will now look to target a return with Albion.
