West Brom are already top of the Championship, but it looks a lot like Slaven Bilic isn’t prepared to rest on his laurels, and is looking to be proactive in the current transfer window. With that in mind, one man who could be set to sign on the dotted line is the impressive Mislav Orsic.

The Croatian superstar has been linked with a move from Dinamo Zagreb to West Brom by Sportske Novosti, and if the 27-year-old does swap the Croatian first division for the Championship then it would be one hell of a coup from Bilic, who obviously sees something in his countryman.
So far this season, Orsic has bagged 11 goals in 13 games for Zagreb in his domestic league, as well as a further seven goals and four assists in 12 Champions League qualifiers and group games (Transfermarkt). It’s clear he can hack it at the top level, but now it’s up to Bilic to poach him and ensure that the Croatian international proves it.
Do West Brom need to spend in January?
Yes, the squad needs that extra something
No, we're sorted for now

The Baggies love the idea of bringing in Orsic yet only time will tell if this rumour has legs.
