The BBC report that West Brom have agreed an £8m fee with Cardiff City for striker Kenneth Zohore with the club looking to replace soon-to-be departing Salomon Rondon. The news of the transfer has caused a negative reaction amongst some of The Baggies fanbase.

Zohore only scored one goal in 19 Premier League matches as Neil Warnock’s Cardiff were relegated to the Championship last season which has left many supporters at the Hawthorns worried about their prospects in front of goal next term.

One fan questioned the £8m transfer fee for a striker who only scores one goal a season. Whilst another demanded the club go out and re-sign Dwight Gayle, claiming he’s exactly what the club needs and exactly what the fans want – the Newcastle United striker netted 24 goals in 40 Championship appearances on loan last season.

Other reaction included one member of The Baggies’ support wondering if he was missing something when thinking about that hefty £8m fee – which was reinforced by another fan stating that they just can’t replace Jay Rodriguez and Gayle with someone who has only previously scored 9 in 36 at this level of football.

The former Denmark Under-21 international joined the Welsh side in 2016 and has played 77 games in the Championship for them, bagging 23 goals and 10 assists.

Here’s the best selection of reactions from the West Brom faithful:
