West Bromwich Albion are reportedly unlikely to sign Haris Seferovic in the ongoing January transfer window.
It was recently reported in Turkey that Seferovic is one of the options for the West Brom are looking at to sort out their issues in attack. Having said that, a new update has emerged about the Baggies’ interest in the striker.
Should WBA break the bank for Seferovic?
Seferovic move unlikely despite West Brom interest
Express and Star have confirmed West Brom’s interest in Seferovic, but claimed that while Benfica need to sell some of their players this month, West Brom only have funds for a loan deal with the option to buy him in the summer.
With that in mind, the report states that a deal for the Swiss forward is unlikely this month even though West Brom and Benfica are still in talks for a potential deal involving the 28-year-old.
In the current campaign, Seferovic has scored seven league goals for the side, also picking up three assists for Benfica. In his Benfica career, the forward has scored 53 times, getting 19 assists in 146 games. He is also a regular part of the Swiss national team, playing 66 times and scoring 19 goals.
Seferovic would add goals for West Brom
Seferovic’s goalscoring exploits show that he can add goals to the Baggies team. Allardyce’s men have scored the fourth-lowest number of goals in the league this season – 15. Only Burnley, Sheffield United and Fulham have scored fewer goals than them (as per Whoscored). Matheus Pereira is their highest scorer with only four goals in the campaign.
Seferovic is clearly capable of scoring goals and has international experience too, so he could be worth a punt for the Baggies.
In other news, many WBA fans have been fuming at a news update about Matheus Pereira – read more here.
