Galatasaray striker Mbaye Diagne becomes West Brom target

The Senegalese striker is wanted in England with West Brom reported to be interested in the player.

Galatasaray striker Mbaye Diagne, who has been prolific for his club this campaign, has been reported to be on the list of targeted players of West Brom Albion this winter.

He has been impressive for the Turkish giants this season scoring 11 goals in 18 appearances in all competitions for the club. The report has it that the 29-year-old could be available on loan, with an option to sign permanently, provided that the Albions can survive past the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, which www.bestusacasinosites.com has been dropping massive odds for ahead of the games for the fans.

It is understood that the Senegal international is on the list of targeted players along with a shortlist of strikers currently playing in Europe. West Brom manager Sam Allardyce has promised the fans that there won’t be unfinished business in the January winter transfer window as he searches for players that can help them survive the Premier League season.

Having taken charge of the Baggies’ team from former coach Slaven Bilic on December 16 of last year, Allardyce claimed his first victory with the club in their 3-2 away win against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

He believes that West Brom needs to usher in three new players during this transfer window as he reveals that he is most likely to run the rule over 250 potential targets.

Speaking to the media, the former Everton manager said: “I’m very adept in this window. It’s very difficult, but I’m used to doing business in it.So we’ll do between 100-150 – maybe even 250 enquiries during January to get the men we need. That was the same at all the other clubs I’ve been at.

“Hopefully, by the end of that, we’ll get three or four good players who can go straight into the first team – or certainly not take very long before they do because we need that boost.

“We got a boost on Saturday. We need to carry on in the next three games before the end of January, and hopefully, by then the players coming in will go on the pitch thinking: ‘We can win this game’.”

Just this month, Allardyce has brought in Robert Snodgrass and Andy Lonergan to the club. Snodgrass made an impressive debut in their match against Wolves on Saturday, which is the club’s second victory in the Premier League so far in this campaign and best payout online casino will be looking forward to the players that will be signed to club.
