aren’t all three sources (O Jogo, A Bola and Record) Portuguese outlets? Suggests that the may not know about our penchant for post moving, at least not as well as they know benfica’s habits. Maybe they don’t know which side is causing the delay, just that there is one?

of course you may be right , but they do state that Benfica aren't easy to deal with, if it was us being difficult I'm sure they would have reported it as such.

May be next week according to Matt Wilson

https://www.expressandstar.com/sport/football/west-bromwich-albion/2019/07/04/chelseas-trevoh-chalobah-on-west-broms-list-of-targets/

Not sure about this one now, Matt Wilson reporting the deal was done on Monday and that he'd be flying over to finalise. Now he's not flying until next week, with lots of strange clauses about us having to pay more if he doesn't play enough games or if we get promoted etc.

What's the point in him flyng to England when he can just drive up to us in Spain in his car???? This deal is done, it was done days ago.

Benfica to Benidorm must be quite a drive!

It's not that far. About 500 miles.

Fresh reports in the Portuguese media claim that West Brom’s move for Filip Krovinovic is now 'at risk’

Did we really expect anything else? This is West Brom - nothing gets sorted in a few days. This is my big fear for this season. Four weeks left of a transfer window and our dealings always take an age!

I wonder if Bojans availability has anything to do with this delay.

Interesting thought.

If the rumoured 300k plus 110k if he doesn't play enough games are true, then its only another 500k to sign Bojan on a perm (not factoring in his wages will probably be higher than Filips).

Just having a quick google and Bojan was linked with West Ham when Bilic sold Payet. If it was someone Slav had an eye on then, he may return back for him now. Also thinking back when we were linked with him when DM was in charge, if it was a Dowling target then it could easily make sense that its someone we may try get now for a 'bargain.'

Bojan  sadly looks finished , done nothing in about 3 years now including two loan spells . To me he's just the sort we need to avoid and his wages won't be cheap , much rather look at Krovinovic or the likes.

Still plenty of people on the Oatcake love him, and dreading him signing for another Championship club. We could do a lot worse, and probably will.

He must still have gas in the tank as he is only 28, 29 on 28th August and he hasn’t actually driven very far lately

Just had a quick read on Oatcake and half say he's not the same since his injury and he offers nothing.

Why is everyone presuming the potential collapse of this transfer is down to bojan? This is the Albion we’re talking about it’s bad it’s always bad when it comes to transfers.

It might be that he has become disenchanted with football over the past few years of not being selected by a series of Managers and a new challenge may reinvigorate him.

I’m not say we should have Bojan over Krovinovic, but in addition too.

If the fee is as reported, £1m and if his wage demands are within our budget, imo he is worth taking a chance on
