Many West Bromwich Albion fans have flocked to a tweet from West Brom news Twitter account @WBAReport which quote-tweeted a post from The Sun’s Alan Nixon in which he said that Albion are ‘keen on’ signing Crystal Palace centre-back Mamadou Sakho.
This transfer link comes after Allardyce declared that his side’s January transfer business would play an essential role in their Premier League survival bid. With Allardyce on the hunt for short-term fixes at The Hawthorns, it seems like Sakho could be on his January wishlist if Nixon’s claim is to be believed.
So, how did these West Brom fans react to this transfer claim?
Nixon’s claim drew a positive reaction from plenty of West Brom fans after the journalist’s tweet was shared by @WBAReport, with many Baggies supporters indicating that they’d like to see Sakho at the West Midlands club despite the 30-year-old not playing a very significant role for Palace this term.
“He’d fill a gap that needs filling. Improves on our current CB’s and could fill in at LB too if, as is the case currently, Gibbs and Townsend are injured. Sam’s got a tune out of him previously as well. Worth a punt.”
“Personally think he is exactly what we are looking for”
“Mate, he’s better than Bartley and Ivanovic”
“Get them in… players play differently for different teams. How bad was Jacob Murphy for us and he now starts for Newcastle?”
“I think so he’s a leader, organiser. Would help O’Shea, Bartley and Ajayi”
“Yes yes yes”
“I’d have him”
Would you want Sakho at West Brom?
