West Brom fans were spot on about Zohore

West Brom’s number one priority this summer was to bring in some strikers.

They’d just lost Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez, so they were seriously lacking firepower up front, and if they wanted to mount a serious promotion challenge they needed new centre-forwards.

We all know that the Baggies have managed to challenge for the top two as they currently sit six points clear of third place, but that doesn’t necessarily indicate that their hunt for a striker was successful.

They brought in two players in the shape of Charlie Austin and Kenneth Zohore and after just 11 league goals between them, you have to say that they weren’t the best pieces of business the Baggies have ever done.

To be fair to Austin, a goal every 132 minutes isn’t something you can complain about, but after paying £8m for Zohore, three league goals all season just isn’t good enough.

The worst thing is, fans saw this coming a mile off, and they were very sceptical about his arrival when they were initially linked with him.

Of course, West Brom’s scouting will consist of more than looking at his goal record online, but when you’re trying to replace two 20-goal strikers you need to prioritise someone who has a track record of finding the net regularly, and Zohore wasn’t that man.

Can you name this obscure former Sheffield Wednesday player?

The Norwegian hasn’t gone a long way towards proving the fanbase wrong, quickly slipping down to being the Midlands club’s third-choice striker behind Hal Robson-Kanu and Austin.

Unfortunately, Luke Dowling couldn’t see this even though a number of fans could, and the £8m signing of Zohore is a blemish on the Baggies man’s record.

In other news, West Brom are underutilising one man.
