Many West Bromwich Albion fans have flocked to a tweet from Joseph Masi that recently emerged on social media.
Masi relayed a tweet which carried a transfer update for the Baggies. He said that West Brom have now agreed a deal with Galatasaray to sign striker Mbaye Diagne on a loan deal.
Sky Sports have reported that the deal does have an option to buy the player permanently and the club are now making their arrangements to fly Diagne to the UK as soon as they can. They now also have permission to speak to the player.
Are you happy about the Diagne signing?
The report states that signing a striker this month has been a top priority for Sam Allardyce and while he had an interest in Christian Benteke, the Belgian is set to stay at Crystal Palace. Sky Sports also stated that the Baggies have made a loan offer for Jesse Lingard, but the loan fee and wages could become a problem for them.
The Senegalese Diagne has played 15 times in the league for Galatasaray this season, scoring nine times so far. He also scored twice for them in three Europa League qualifying games earlier in the campaign (as per Transfermarkt).
Masi’s tweet caught the attention of many West Brom fans, who gave their opinion about the potential signature of Diagne.
What did West Brom fans make of this news about Diagne?
“No idea if he’s any good but if he’s mobile, that will do.”
“No idea how good he is but has to be better than the current incumbents.“
“At this point, I’d rather just save the money and start planning for the Championship.“
“As long as he has a pair of boots, I don’t care, something has to change personnel-wise.“
“That’s a good bit of business that. Need a few more mind, but it’s a good start.”
“Couple of defenders and a couple of midfielders then we may have a chance. As long as they’re of Premier League quality that is !!“
“It’s a start.”
