Football Insider claim that the Baggies are keen to beat Championship rivals Leeds United to the signing of Sheffield United striker David McGoldrick, with the 32-year-old attacker heading into the final 18 months of his contract with the Blades.
Do West Brom need to spend in January?
Yes, the squad needs that extra something
No, we're sorted for now
With the former Ipswich Town forward yet to score a Premier League goal for Chris Wilder’s side this season as stats from Transfermarkt show, this lack of action in front of goal has resulted in plenty of West Brom fans on social media pleading with the club not to make a move for McGoldrick this month.
Here’s what some West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about the rumour…
Please no just another HRK

I sincerely hope not! Another ageing striker will end up like most (not all!) of the rest we’ve signed over the years! Short term fix, probably doomed to failure!

Why on earth would we want this dinosaur

Too old. Doesn’t fit in with what the club have said on future signings.

Despite not scoring for Sheffield United this season, McGoldrick is enjoying a fantastic comeback year in the Premier League with the Blades currently sat eight in the standings.
