Leeds fans react as West Brom linked with £10m-rated Champions League attacker

West Brom are reportedly interested in making an offer as high as £6million for Dinamo Zagreb attacker Mislav Orsic after he scored a hat-trick in the Champions League earlier this season – and that has left Leeds fans frustrated.

West Brom, who leapfrogged Leeds into top spot on Saturday after the Whites lost to Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road, already boast a number of attacking stars – especially in wide positions.

Grady Diangana has starred since joining on loan from West Ham, while Matt Phillips has been one of the best wide players at Championship level for many years. Matheus Pereira, Hal Robson-Kanu and more are options.

But Slaven Bilic is concerned that Diangana could be recalled by David Moyes, after having a hand in 11 goals during his 20 league appearances – scoring five and creating six. That is why Orsic has been targeted, according to Sportske Novosti.

The report claims Bilic is looking to raid one of his home country’s biggest sides for 27-year-old Orsic, who has three caps for Croatia to his name. Indeed, no.99 Orsic is in the form of his life for Zagreb, after shining in the Champions League.

Zagreb clocked up just five points from their six Champions League group games, but Orsic scored four goals in that campaign – netting a hat-trick against Atalanta. He has 19 goals and five assists in 26 games this season.

The report claims West Brom will offer as much as £6million, but Dinamo Zagreb value the player as high as £10million. Despite the difference in price, the Baggies are showing ambition and that has frustrated Leeds supporters on Twitter.

Leeds also need a additions in the final third but a move for Southampton’s Che Adams looks as though it has fallen flat on its face. Ian Poveda, Emre Mor, Andre Gray and more have been linked, but no additions as of yet.
