How Twitter reacted to West Brom signing Grzegorz Krychowiak from PSG

Written by

West Brom have announced the signing of Grzegorz Krychowiak from PSG on a season-long loan. This has been a transfer that has emerged from nowhere and it is a huge coup for the Baggies. Last summer, he moved to Paris for £28 million and was regarded as one of the best midfielders of Euro 2016. At the beginning of this window, nobody would have seen him as a realistic option for Tony Pulis, but he deserves credit for pulling this deal off.

Despite arriving for big money last summer, his opportunities were limited at PSG and it looked unlikely that he would feature prominently this season. The 27-year-old is at an age where he needs to be playing regularly and he will relish the chance to prove himself in the Premier League. Although West Brom might not be able to satisfy his ambitions long-term, they provide him with the opportunity to revive his reputation. If he has a strong season at the Hawthorns, he will have options next summer.

Krychowiak is a defensive midfielder, who has experience at the highest level. He played a major role as Sevilla won back-to-back Europa Leagues and emerged. During this time, he emerged as one of the most promising players in his position and that earned him a move to PSG. There were bigger clubs interested in him this summer, but the Baggies have pulled off the deal to bring him to the Midlands.

Tony Pulis still comes under criticism from supporters, but he has made ambitious moves this summer. They are coming out of the transfer window with a much-improved squad and it is now up to him to prove he can push them on as a team. Supporters will be demanding they secure a top-half finish as a minimum and start to play a more pleasing brand of football.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the news:

West Brom supporters were understandable excited by the news:

Other Premier League fans were disappointed their club didn’t get involved:
