The Express have recently reported about Diagne and his links with a move to the Hawthorns. The report states that the Baggies are looking to sign the striker on loan from Galatasaray this month and they want to have an option to buy him permanently in the summer.
Should WBA sign Diagne in January?
The report suggests that Sam Allardyce’s men have already held talks with Galatasaray over a potential move for the striker. The Turkish club meanwhile, are in negotiations with Zamalek over a deal for his potential replacement Mostafa Mohamed.
Having said that, Allardye has just one Premier League loan slot remaining in the squad and the club are also keen on signing Leicester midfielder Hamza Choudhury in January. But Galatasaray’s chase of Mohamed has offered renewed hope to the Baggies in their chase of Diagne.
Diagne has impressed for his club this season, scoring 11 times in all competitions – nine times in the Turkish league. His goalscoring record at his previous clubs has also been prolific, states a report from Birmingham Live.
The update about Diagne was relayed on Twitter by Express journalist Ryan Taylor. Many West Brom fans made their views clear about the striker.
