Matheus Pereira set to leave West Brom

West Bromwich Albion winger Matheus Pereira looks set to leave The Hawthorns this summer.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a Joseph Masi report in the Express & Star, in which the comments of the new West Brom manager, Valerien Ismael, regarding the future of the 25-year-old forward were relayed.

Pereira has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs, including the likes of West Ham United, Aston Villa, Leeds United and Leicester City, following Albion’s relegation last season.

And, according to Ismael, the Brazilian looks highly unlikely to remain at The Hawthorns this summer, with the 45-year-old confirming that he expects the winger to leave the club ahead of next season.

Will Pereira leave West Brom this summer?





Fans will be devastated

Considering just how impressive Pereira has been for West Brom since joining the club from Sporting Lisbon on a permanent deal last summer, the fact that Ismael very much appears resigned to losing the services of the forward this summer is likely to devastate Albion fans.

Indeed, over his 33 Premier League appearances for the Baggies last season, the £13.5m-rated man scored 11 goals, registered six assists and created 11 big chances for his teammates, as well as taking an average of two shots and making 1.8 key passes per game.

These returns saw the man Noel Whelan dubbed a “fantastic” player earn a seasonal SofaScore match rating of 7.18, ranking him as West Brom’s best performer in the top flight of English football.

As such, considering how important a part of the West Brom side the £39k-per-week winger was last season, should Ismael go on to lose the Brazilian’s services this summer, it would undoubtedly be a huge blow to Albion’s chances of going on to secure an immediate return to the Premier League come next summer.

However, after the Frenchman’s latest comments, if we were fans of the Baggies, we would not be holding our breath hoping the forward will be playing his football at The Hawthorns next year.
