BirminghamLive have since claimed that the Prva HNL champions value their prolific talisman at around £9m after signing him for just £1.5m last summer.

and Bilic himself has even confirmed his interest in the versatile Croatian.

It has sparked mass reaction from sections of the Albion fanbase with many wanting to see the club stump up the cash to clinch him.

Some supporters felt that the potential move could be quite the steal as one man suggested that it would be the ‘bargain of the century’ while another believed the Baggies should just announce promotion already if they can sign the Croatian.

Orsic has been in red hot form this season – in 26 appearances in all competitions, the 27-year-old has bagged 19 goals, including a hattrick in the Champions League against Atalanta, who advanced into the knockout stages, per Transfermarkt.

One fan said Albion would be stupid not to pay £9m for a player of this quality in today’s market while the suggestion that he would be a bargain continued to be a recurring theme.

In addition, another member of the Baggies faithful believed that Bilic’s influence would help the player settle due to them both being from Croatia.

And finally, fans were quick to make a variety of comparisons – the first relating to two expensive mistakes in Brown Ideye and Oliver Burke, who the club spent around £25m on.
