West Brom: Baggies fans react to £15m Karlan Grant claim

West Brom: Baggies fans react to £15m Karlan Grant claim - Premier League

The Telegraph’s John Percy has prompted a large reaction from West Bromwich Albion fans after claiming that the Baggies are set to sign Karlan Grant from Huddersfield this week.

Gaining promotion to the Premier League this summer, Slaven Bilic’s side have had a sluggish start to the season, losing on opening day to Leicester City before failing to beat Everton, Chelsea and Southampton.

With Bilic spending £22.3m this summer bringing in the likes of Grady Diangana, Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson on permanent deals, the Croatian tactician has failed to seal a deal for a star striker.

Recognised front men Hal-Robson Kanu, Charlie Austin and Kenneth Zohore have all struggled to feature and Bilic now faces a race against time to bring in Grant before the domestic transfer window closes on Friday, with Percy claiming the Huddersfield ace is Bilic’s priority target and a £15m deal is close.

With the deadline fast approaching, the Baggies need to get this one over the line or they risk relying on the old guard in what is sure to be a gruelling league campaign.

The Terriers striker has experience of playing in the Premier League, making 12 appearances for Huddersfield during their time in England’s top flight, which saw him net four goals.

Valued at £5.85m by Transfermarkt, the price quoted by Percy may be a little steep but at just 23 years of age Grant could yet prove to be an absolute bargain if he develops at the top level.

Reacting to the potential arrival of Grant, some fans called on the club to make some other signings before deadline day.

Matching Percy’s claim was The Athletic journalist Steve Madeley and fans also reacted to his latest tweet, with one supporter worrying about his match fitness given that the youngster has not played yet this season.
