A number of West Brom supporters are excited about the prospect of striker Daryl Dike potentially joining the Baggies this summer.
Valerien Ismael got his West Brom reign underway on Friday night, watching his side draw 2-2 away to Bournemouth in an entertaining Championship encounter.
The Baggies are already one of the favourites to be promoted to the Premier League this season, but that doesn’t mean new signings aren’t required to further enhance the squad.
Will Sam Johnstone leave West Brom before the window shuts?
According to the Express & Star, West Brom are eyeing up a move for American attacker Dike, who currently plays for Orlando City.
The 21-year-old impressed hugely during a loan spell with Barnsley last season, scoring nine goals in 21 league appearances and helping the Tykes reach the Championship playoffs.
West Brom fans excited about potential Dike signing
News of West Brom’s rumoured interest in Dike has gone down well with these Baggies fans on Twitter, who provided their positive thoughts on the update.
“The more I see and read of this Daryl Dike, the more I’m impressed. Nine goals in 19 games for Barnsley, 2 player of the month awards in a 5-month loan spell, looks a right handful in the videos from last season. Get him in“
“Daryl Dike looks like exactly the player we need. Power, strength, decent in the air and with a good touch. Yes please“
“Sounds like Dike is feasible if we could get him in that would be ideal and then we really do need to look into midfielders“
“Dike. One in 2 for Barnsley. Knows the system. Very little time for him to get up to speed. No brainer“
“We won’t lose a game this year if we sign Dike“
“Dike is a better signing for WBA than Delap for numerous reasons; 1) experienced at this level already. 2) knows the current manager and how he works. 3) we can get a long-term recruit. Loan to buy. Which isn’t an option with Delap“
