Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of Haris Seferovic at Benfica.
Reports in the British media claim West Brom are keen to land Benfica striker Seferovic.
The Switzerland international joined Benfica from Eintracht Frankfurt on a free transfer in July 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2024.
This season, Seferovic has scored 10 goals and provided 3 assists in 22 appearances for Benfica.
The 28-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Switzerland.
Haris Seferovic has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 19 goals in 66 senior appearances for the Switzerland national team.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including WBA.
Sam Allardyce wants to sign a new striker and Seferovic is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The report details that Allardyce feels his attack currently lacks some bite and that he could strengthen this winter.
Sam Allardyce is a firm fan of Benfica striker and WBA could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The Baggies are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Haris Seferovic will take West Brom’s attack to a different level.
According to the report,”West Brom are eyeing Benfica striker Haris Seferovic. Baggies boss Sam Allardyce has made it clear he is determined to sign a centre-forward before the transfer window closes on February 1. Galatasaray striker Mbaye Diagne is another goal-scorer high on his shortlist. But Seferovic is also a player the Baggies are keen on, says the Express & Star. And the Portuguese side need to sell players this month. Albion, though, only have the funds to sign a forward on loan with a view to a permanent transfer.”
