West Brom are not satisfied with the signings and may still need four more players in order to do the best for the upcoming Premier League campaign according to manager Tony Pulis.
The club have been quite active in the transfer market by bringing in the likes of Gareth Barry and Jay Rodriguez. Oliver Burke has become the latest signing for the club after coming from RB Leipzig for € 15 million. Even then, manager says that the club needs to strengthen in four other positions while also admitting that the next few days will be extremely tough on everyone concerned with the club.
The transfer deadline day may bring plenty of surprises for West Brom, as the club could lose defender Jonny Evans. Manchester City are showing plenty of interest in the former Manchester United player and have even made a £ 15 million bid, which was rejected. However, it is believed that an offer in the region of £ 20 million will be sufficient to get accepted by West Brom.
In such a scenario, it would represent a healthy profit for the club since he was signed for around £ 8 million a couple of years ago. However, it would leave Pulis with plenty of problems at the back, and it is likely that the manager will sanction a sale only if a replacement arrives.
“There’s four other positions we’d like to bring players in. Hell of a lot! (to do). Hopefully we can.It’s difficult, these two weeks are always stressful for managers, football clubs, players, supporters and everyone else.Hopefully next year we’ll have it washed away and we can just concentrate on the games. If Jonny went or didn’t, there’s still four areas we want to fill and that is one of the areas we’re looking to do,” said Pulis.
