Speaking to Football Insider, reacting to reports West Ham have made contact over a potential summer deal for Mislav Orsic, Sky Sports regular Paul Robinson has been left wowed by the 19-goal forward and his impressive show reel.
Orsic, primarily played on the left wing but can drive through the middle, has apparently been at the centre of West Ham interest recently – with GSB even making contact over a possible transfer for the 28-year-old according to another report by Football Insider.
Speaking to the outlet, Robinson has been left baffled by Orsic and his ability – with the pundit certainly rating him judging by what he’s seen.
Robinson stunned by Orsic
The Croatian’s stunning Europa League hat-trick dumped London rivals Tottenham Hotspur out of the Europa League, with Jose Mourinho unable to hold a two-goal first leg lead.
“His shooting ability was there for all to see,” Robinson told Football Insider.
“I mean wow, he scored some fantastic goals.
“He is not a player we know a lot about in England given that he’s playing for Dinamo Zagreb but those goals showed you a lot. I watched his showreel after that and I was impressed.
“He is clearly a player with an abundance of talent and with an eye for goal.
“He used that stage to put himself in the thoughts of Premier League teams.”
Transfer Tavern take
Whether or not West Ham end up doing a deal for Orsic this summer remains to be seen, but it seems Robinson would certainly approve of the switch.
Valued at just £6.75 million by Transfermarkt, it’s clear Zagreb may want much more for their star striker.
