West Bromwich Albion fans have been reacting to the news (Daily Mail) that the Baggies are interested in signing Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke.
The Midlands outfit are clearly interested in signing a striker, already having been linked with moves for Cenk Tosun (Sky Sports) and Mbaye Diagne (Express and Star). It seems that they are now looking at £8.1m-valued Belgium international Benteke (Transfermarkt) as they look to solve their attacking woes.
The 30-year-old has been with Palace for five years and, although he netted 15 times in the Premier League during the 2016/17 campaign, he has scored just nine in the top flight since then (Transfermarkt). Still, Sam Allardyce has previously managed the former Liverpool man, so he will know what to expect with him.
Would you liked to have signed Christian Benteke?
The Baggies fans have been reacting to the news, and it seems they would be very interested in taking him to The Hawthorns. They took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Benteke below
“He’s exactly what we need”
“#WBA A no brainer this. Benteke is exactly what we need. Should have gone for him in the summer as @matt_p_w Would have been far better than Grant. Sadly can’t see this happening as we have no money or we will agree to only playing Thursday lunchtimes or some such nonsense.“
“He’s scored more goals at The Hawthorns this season than our current forwards. Get him in! #WBA”
“Given he only scores against us, the last thing we need is someone scoring own goals for us serious though I think he’d be a good signing”
“You know what I’d be all for this. Since leaving the villa it hasnt gone the way we all expected but he does have goals in him”
