West Brom fans have taken to Twitter to express their delight at the prospect of signing Mario Mandzukic. 

According to the print edition of the Sunday People (September 13th), the Baggies are keeping tabs on the 89-cap Croatia international ahead of a potential free transfer after he was released by Qatari side Al Duhail.

But it is also understood that his wage demands would have to be lowered for their to be any hope of him arriving at The Hawthorns this season.

And judging by the reaction of many fans online, that’s a real shame.

It’s no secret that Albion are in the market for a new hitman this summer, and they don’t get much better qualified than the 34-year-old.

The striker is a Champions League winner with just shy of 200 club goals to his name over the course of his career, and even in his latter years, you would have to back him to bring a dash of quality with him wherever he goes.

The fact that he is a free agent would also be a draw, but the reality is that his wages could be a stumbling block that is too large for the Baggies to traverse.

Of course, that would be a shame, but if it allows us to double down with more funds for another target, then it could also prove to be a blessing in disguise.

Here are some of the best tweets from Albion supporters:
