West Brom remain in talks with Huddersfield Town over the transfer of striker Karlan Grant but the two sides have reached an impasse.

Yorkshire Live have reported that the Baggies are still interested in signing the 23-year-old forward, despite there being no recent progress on the deal, with less than two weeks to go until the transfer window closes.

The report claims that the two clubs are in agreement over the fee but the sticking point is how the deal is strucutured.

Huddersfield want more money up front than West Brom are currently offering.

Yorkshire Live also believe that ‘it would appear that both clubs are waiting to see if the other is going to be the one to budge’. With time running out to get the deal done before the closure of the transfer window, we’re hoping to see some movement on this transfer in the coming days.

Grant has been continuously linked to a move to the Hawthorns this summer, with Slaven Bilic keen to add a striker with Premier League experience to his side, as he looks to keep the Baggies in the top flight.

Callum Robinson has started both of the Baggies’ Premier League games this season, and has failed to make any kind of impact in those games, which has highlighted the need for a target man in Bilic’s side.

While Grant appears to have been the main target for the Baggies, other forwards have been linked in recent days, such as Swansea’s Andre Ayew and Rennes’ Mbaye Niang.

A striker is a must and we desperately want to see Grant come in.

Ayew scores goals but he isn’t an out-and-out striker, although he has played up front for Swansea.

If the hold-up is purely now over the structure of the deal, we’re optimistic that a compromise can be reached.
