There appears to be a bit of excitement building up over at the Hawthorns after Matt Wilson of the Express & Star provided a more positive update on West Brom’s pursuit of Basel striker Albian Ajeti.

After previously claiming that West Brom were put off by the wage demands of the 22-year-old, he now states that talks between the two remain ongoing with the striker’s wage demands not as incompatible as first believed.

Ajeti scored 21 goals in 43 appearances for Basel last term, including in both the Champions League and Europa League qualifying stages. The Swiss league is already well underway for this season and the 6 foot forward has made his presence known, bagging a goal and two assists in his only appearance so far.

A number of fans took to social media to share their opinion on the potential arrival with one supporter declaring the Switzerland international was the exact kind of striker the club needed and that if they can pull it off he would be more than happy with the signing.

Others labelled him a top class player, promising and a goalscorer with one fan describing Ajeti as good in the air with stamina. Also believing that he can deal with pressure coming from a big club like Basel. Another member of the Baggies faithful had to make reference to his name, saying he will fit right in.
