According to The Daily Mail, West Bromwich Albion are eyeing a deal for Crawley Town striker Max Watters.
Watters on Baggies radar
The Baggies are said to be pursuing Watters, who only made a move to Crawley on a free transfer in October. Already, though, he has managed 12 goals in 14 matches for his new club.
As such, a number of clubs are interested in the 21-year-old. Along with Slaven Bilic’s men, Watford have also been mentioned as a potential suitor, while clubs from League One and Belgium also have him on their radar.
This could be a stunning move for the Midlands outfit. Crawley could reportedly be looking for a fee of £1m for his services, which would of course represent a significant profit for his current employers. However, for West Brom, it would be nothing other than a drop in the ocean for a player who Darren Moore, his former manager at Doncaster, said had “wonderful attributes”.
Would you like to sign Watters?
The Baggies have scored just eight goals in the Premier League so far this term as they sit in the bottom three – only Sheffield United and Burnley have managed less. A new striker, therefore, wouldn’t go amiss, and Watters could just be the perfect option ahead of the January transfer window.
In other news, West Brom fans hammer these comments from Bilic.
