West Brom hasn’t had a good track record in recruiting exciting forwards, and that trend could continue if the reports are to be believed …
Which is the word?
According to Sky Sports reporter Kavel Solhekol on the Transfer Show (as broadcast by Daily soccer), the Baggies have been offered the opportunity to sign Angers SCO forward Stephane Bahoken with an option to buy.
“We know that West Brom doesn’t have much to spend [this window]So maybe that would be a good fit, ”Solhekol said.
Is Stephane Bahoken the forward who will save West Brom?
WHO? No way!
Yes, bring him in!
Sam Allardyce has already beefed up his Albion squad with the additions of Robert. Snodgrass and Andy Lonergan, but the need for additional firepower has increased since the departure from Charlie Austin to QPR on loan and the long injury held to Karlan Grant.
Another Stephane failure
As we’ve mentioned, West Brom’s history with the attacking department has been atrocious – the fact that last summer’s two signings, Austin and Kenneth Zohore, are on loan says it all, but if that’s not enough then you can remember. to Brown Ideye. – or Stephane Sessegnon.
In 2016, the Midlands team broke their transfer record with the £ 5.5 million Sessegnon’s signing from Sunderland. That turned out to be a disaster as it only scored eight goals in 92 appearances – Arguably one of the worst we’ve seen in the Hawthorns.
Before his Black Cats stint, the Benin international had never appeared in England, and with Bahoken, we are having a similar situation, as he only had one loan period in Scotland – both played most of their careers in France. .
the self proclaimed “Animal” had a pretty sad stint in the SPFL for St Mirren, which led to manager Danny Lennon urging fans backed him amid claims that he “didn’t handle” the situation at the club well.
Failed to score in five appearances, so why would he be suitable for a desperate relegation fight in the Premier League?
Regardless of the Baggies’ finances, Big Sam would run into another transfer error if he approved a move for Bahoken and that, given his track record, would be an absolutely unforgivable mistake.
And in other news, 1 goal every 80 minutes – THIS is what West Brom could have with a £ 12.5 million drop …
