Why West Brom must go all out to sign Dinamo Zagreb star Mislav Orsic

According to Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti (h/t The Birmingham Mail), West Brom are plotting a move for Dinamo Zagreb forward Mislav Orsic.

Mislav Orsic, 27, has been in sublime form for Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb, scoring 11 goals in 13 league games this term.

A memorable hat-trick against Atalanta in the Champions League earlier this season further enhanced the 27-year-old’s reputation. Croatian football expert Alex Holiga (h/t Birmingham Mail) claims that Zagreb would demand around €10m.

As far as West Brom are concerned, they lead the way in the Championship despite the drop in form. Hence, manager Slaven Bilic should do everything possible to bounce back to the deadly form they showcased initially.

Bilic has had West Brom playing an attacking, expansive brand of football in the Championship. They are a quality side who have good options across the pitch but in order to achieve automatic promotion, Bilic should look to add a couple of players this month.

Charlie Austin, Kenneth Zohore and Hal Robson-Kanu are the three senior strikers at Bilic’s disposal but none has been consistent. The Baggies have largely been free-scoring in the attack and an addition of a prolific goalscorer could take the team to a better level.

Hence, West Brom should go for Mislav Orsic. The Croat has been in good goal-scoring form this term, both domestically and in Europe.

Verdict

If the Baggies manage to get their hands on Orsic, it would be a good signing as the forward has proven himself for Zagreb.
