West Brom: Krovinovic set for exit

West Brom: Krovinovic set for exit - Premier League

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Filip Krovinovic is reportedly set for a Baggies exit and is set to return to Portuguese side Benfica.

Krovinovic has been linked with a move to Championship side Nottingham Forest and Croatian club Hajduk Split but an update has emerged about his future at the Hawthorns.

Krovinovic’s loan set for termination

Football Insider have recently reported on Krovinovic’s situation at West Brom. They state that the Baggies are set to terminate the Croatian’s loan deal, meaning he will return to his parent club Benfica.

He is said to be surplus to Sam Allardyce’s requirements at the Hawthorns and his exit would mean that the Baggies will have some extra wages to spend and another place in the squad for Big Sam to fill with a new player.

The report goes on to state that there is indeed interest in him from Nottingham Forest and Greek side Olympiacos and he is set for another loan move away from Benfica.

The midfielder arrived at West Brom on loan from Benfica in the summer of 2020 and in the current campaign, the Croatian has made 11 appearances in the Premier League. He also played once in the FA Cup, but he is yet to score or assist for the Baggies during this spell (as per Transfermarkt).

He is currently valued at £5.85m and as many as 13 WBA players have picked up better ratings than him in the current league campaign.

Krovinovic would need replacing

Since Allardyce’s arrival at the Hawthorns, Krovinovic has played just once for the Baggies in the Premier League. He played 17 minutes of the club’s 5-0 loss to Leeds United last month and he has been on the bench for each of their other games (as per Transfermarkt).

Given he’s not in the manager’s plans, it makes sense for Albion to let Krovinovic return to Benfica and hopefully replace him with a player who Allardyce believes in.
