West Brom and Aston Villa are both interested in signing 20-year-old Southampton striker Michael Obafemi, a report from The Sun has claimed.
Obafemi has made 33 first-team appearances in all competitions for Southampton’s first-team since graduating from the club’s academy, scoring five times.
The young striker has also been capped once at senior international level by the Republic of Ireland, and it now seems that Obafemi is attracting plenty of attention from elsewhere.
According to the latest reports, both West Brom and Villa are interested in signing Obafemi as they look to boost their goalscoring options for the coming campaign.
Taking to Twitter to react to those claims, plenty of West Brom fans were keen to have their say on those reports about the club’s interest in Obafemi.
Here, we take a look at what some of them had to say.
£10 million would definitely be with add ons. For example, an initial fee of £…m. An extra fee for staying in the PL, appearance fees, goals and potentially international caps. Great young player, fast, strong.

He scored 4 in 25 that’s no good for what we need he maybe up and coming but we need someone who is going to score goals from the off not over time
