Alan Nixon suggests West Brom might not sign a striker this summer

West Brom head coach Valerien Ismael is happy with his current squad and could be done with summer business, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The Baggies have scored five goals over the course of their first two Championship games of the new campaign, drawing one and winning the other.

Nixon was told on Twitter by a Colm Brosnan that Baggies fans cannot seem to believe that there is no transfer news to report, to which he replied:

“Ismael happy with what he has… At this point … Relax.”

A West Brom supporter named Harry insisted the club want a striker, to which the journalist replied:

“I would agree. The guy who matters seems quite happy.”


The trio of Callum Robinson, Karlan Grant and Grady Diangana has played in attack for us so far, starting both games, while Matt Phillips and Kenneth Zohore have both come off the bench.

The five attackers can all play as a central forward, and it appears Ismael reckons that is enough for him.

Having sold Matheus Pereira, West Brom surely have some funds left to bring in another striker, and just maybe the Frenchman is not satisfied with what he has been seeing on the transfer market.

Nixon gets wind of a lot of transfer whispers, and the fact that he has not heard anything about us wanting a striker is something serious.

There are still 16 days left in the window, so a lot can still change.

If Valerien decides not to make any more signings, then we have to trust his judgement.

As far as securing an instant return to the Premier League goes, West Brom have looked the part in their last two games, and we only need to keep improving and getting better to guarantee a place in the top-two after the next 44 games.

In other West Brom news, Ismael sends classy Twitter message to Baggies fans after Luton win.
