Flocking to Twitter, many West Bromwich Albion fans have raved over a transfer update involving former midfielder and fan favourite Okay Yokuslu.
Valerien Ismael’s side, currently sitting just outside the Premier League promotion spots, could be looking to bolster their options in January as the Baggies boss admits that they are working behind the scenes (Express and Star).
Should West Brom re-sign Yokuslu?
Definitely, get it done
No, need a striker!
Indeed, West Brom apparently have their list of targets drawn up ahead of what could be a crucial winter window for the club.
A striker has been on the agenda according to reports, with The Telegraph even claiming that West Brom are interested in re-signing former forward Dwight Gayle.
However, as news emerges on another former player in Yokuslu, it appears Ismael could now want to bring back another ex-hero.
According to La Voz de Galicia, the Turkey international midfielder wants to return to the Hawthorns over all others and Ismael himself would ‘welcome his return’.
West Brom fans erupt…
Former manager Sam Allardyce praised the 27-year-old during his spell at West Brom last season, saying he’s ‘not far off’ former Real Madrid players Ivan Campo and Fernando Hierro, which should certainly highlight how well he played at times.
Making more interceptions per 90 in midfield than any West Brom player over 2020/2021 in the Premier League (WhoScored), it’s little wonder supporters want to see him back. Find all of their best reactions to this transfer claim down below:
“Plz give me yok and dike and we have no reason to not win the league.”
“After Lukaku, I’ve never been more excited for a potential loan signing to come back. Him and a striker in Jan and Ill be incredibly happy!”
“This so needs to happen.”
“Get him in”
“please please please please please please please please please please”
