West Brom eyeing powerful striker in bid to bolster European hopes

Our West Brom fans here in the Transfer Tavern want to see ambitious signings this month and, according to The Sun, they may be about to do just that with Christian Benteke.

The Baggies have been going well this season and have looked like potential European candidates but many here by the bar feel they could do with a few more signings.

Certainly, up top they are looking short with Saido Berahino’s continued problems and only Salomon Rondon their reliable source of goals.

Tony Pulis appears to have had the same thought process, then, with Benteke apparently on his shopping list.

The big Belgian was signed by Crystal Palace at the start of the season from Liverpool and has had an okay season so far.

He’s looked good at times and then struggled at others but it’s likely, given the Eagles’ current plight, that they’d want to keep hold of him as much as possible.

West Brom might have to stump up quite the fee, then, but our landlord reckons it would be worth it if they can get him firing.

Thoughts on this one, West Brom fans? Let us know below!
