West Bromwich Albion could be set for a busy January transfer window.
Multiple reports have emerged over the international break, which concerns several members of Slaven Bilic’s Championship-leading side.
Nathan Ferguson is one who could be on his way out of the Hawthorns as the club will supposedly look to sell him if no agreement can be made over a new contract; Matheus Pereira has been linked to Manchester United; Grady Diangana continually faces uncertainty over his loan deal.
And now Chris Willock, who Bilic signed on deadline day and is yet to feature in a senior game, is being considered as a permanent addition in the winter window.

The 21-year-old winger is on loan from Benfica B and has scored three goals and assisted four in seven Premier League 2 matches this term, per Transfermarkt.
Some of the Baggies faithful have been discussing the potential decision on social media.
A few were against such a deal with one supporter calling it a ‘waste of money’ as the starlet is yet to even make the bench for a Championship fixture while another pleaded the club to save money.
However, many were on board with it. A further member of the Albion crowd claimed Willock was a ‘class player’ with one more wondering if the former Arsenal graduate was the hidden goalscorer they have been missing.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
But why can't he even make the bench ? Is there a deal with Benfica which could explain that ? For example need to pay more money if he made appearances from the start till January ? He is 21 so should be involved if good enough #wba

We need to be more forward thinking. Pereira and Willock are prime examples. Get them in.

Waste of money for a player who struggles to make the bench

I think we are being clever here, think Billic is holding him back till we make it permanent
