West Bromwich Albion linked with Amer Gojak transfer

West Bromwich Albion are reportedly interested in signing Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Amer Gojak this summer.

What’s the news?

According to a recent report from Germanijak and relayed on Twitter by journalist Izak Ante Sucic, the midfielder could be on his way out of the Croatian club in the coming weeks.

It has also been claimed that Dinamo Zagreb would look for a fee of €2m (£1.7m) to sell him, with West Brom being one of many clubs looking at the player.

Which La Liga club did West Brom sign Okay Yokuslu on loan from in the 2021 January transfer window?

The 25-year-old joined the Croatian champions in February 2015 from Bosnian club FK Olimpik.

Since then, the midfielder has gone on to make 200 appearances for his current side across all competitions. In that time, Gojak has scored 18 goals and delivered 21 assists along the way.

However, this season has shown why it would be a mistake for the Baggies to launch a move for the player.

Bruce must avoid Gojak calamity

In 39 appearances this term, Gojak – who is currently valued at £2.25m by Transfermarkt – could only score on two occasions and provided just one assist.

His eight performances in Dinamo Zagreb’s Europa League campaign ultimately earned the midfielder a rather uninspiring overall rating of 6.31/10, making him one of the lowest-rated players from his side to start more than one game in the tournament according to WhoScored.

Do West Brom need to sign another midfielder this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Last season was rather dismal for the Bosnian too as he spent the campaign on loan with Torino. Having made just 15 appearances in Serie A, he again earned a rather poor overall performance rating of 6.33/10 from WhoScored.

Taking all this into account, Gojak’s recent history doesn’t suggest that he would be a good signing for West Brom, or that he would do much to help them reach promotion back to the Premier League. In fact, it could be calamitous for Bruce and his side if they do end up bringing him to The Hawthorns.

It also makes it easy to see why Dinamo Zagreb are reportedly looking to get rid of the player this summer.

Also, the Midlands club’s recent signing of John Swift from Reading suggests that adding another midfielder to their ranks may not be at the top of their priorities at the moment.
