The Brazilian playmaker was subject to a €7 million bid from Saudi-Arabian champions Al-Hilal in early July and has emerged as a target for several Premier League clubs.

According to the Express & Star, The Baggies value Pereira at £30 million – a figure that provides fans with a slight bit of hope that they will be able to see their star man remain at The Hawthorns this summer.

The 25-year-old scored 11 goals and provided a further six assists during West Brom’s relegation campaign last time out, proving to be a rare shining light in an otherwise disappointing few months for The Baggies.

The Brazilian initially joined West Brom in the summer of 2019 on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent move from Benfica.

Here we take a look at how some West Brom fans reacted to the missing Pereira…
