West Brom transfer round-up: Matheus Pereira price tag revealed, Sam Johnstone latest, Defensive transfer target speaks out

Published

on

West Brom are preparing for a crucial summer, with the hierarchy at The Hawthorns still to name the club’s new manager.

Whoever does succeed Sam Allardyce on a permanent basis will be tasked with guiding the club to promotion immediately, so they will need to make some huge decisions in the transfer window.

As is the case with most relegated clubs, Albion face a battle to keep hold of some key men and there could be a high turnover of players coming in and going out in the coming weeks and months.

And, here we provide you with an update of all the latest transfer rumours coming out of Albion…

Do Wolves and West Brom have these 10 things in common?

1 of 10

They have both won 4+ FA Cups.

Albion’s Matheur Pereira demands revealed

One of the few positives for the Baggies as they were relegated from the Premier League was the performances of Matheus Pereira.

A return of 11 goals and six assists means he was always going to attract admirers and TEAMtalk have revealed that Albion want ‘at least £15m’ for the Brazilian playmaker.

Some will feel that’s a low fee considering Pereira’s ability, but it would give the new boss room to strengthen the squad.

Sam Johnstone will not be joining West Ham

Another player who will inevitably depart Albion in the summer is Sam Johnstone.

The keeper was another shining light last season and his form has seen him earn an England call-up, with the stopper producing a magnificent save to keep a clean sheet as the Three Lions beat Romania on Sunday.

West Ham had been frontrunners for the ex-Manchester United man, but a fresh update has stated that move will not happen. That’s not to say Johnstone will stay, but he won’t join the Hammers.

Jack Hendry only focused on Euro 2020

In terms of incomings, things have been pretty quiet for Albion, which is understandable considering they don’t have a manager in place.

However, they have been linked with Celtic’s Jack Hendry, with the centre-back having a low release clause that makes him a very attractive option, with Leeds United and Burnley monitoring him.

But, Hendry has cooled talk about an immediate departure, as he explained how he is focusing on playing for Scotland in Euro 2020 before deciding on his future.
