Claudio Yacob (Left, now at Nottm Forest)
« on: July 13, 2012, 04:23:28 PM »
I hinted at it a few days ago in another thread some information I heard from a decent source, and now its hit foreign press only time before it comes out. The mystery midfielder we are talking/have been too is Claudio Yacob.

I would be very impressed if we get him.

He is nicknamed 'Skinny Girl' because of his dreamy good looks as well.  ;D

Do you think we would still pursue Doumbia if we manage to get Yacob?

No idea, aint got a clue whats happening tbh. Just heard Yacob was in talks with us a few days ago.

Personal opinion would be I think we will sign both if the opportunity arises.

Manchester United too have been linked in the recent past.

SO we are in talks with multiple midefield players, then we get the pick of them, which means turning good players down, and it could be our third signing, and its only mid july?! Freaky friday 13th is this really the WBA we know and love?!

Was reported by Ed Malyon about a month ago. It was on here back in June.

I know it was. I also know he has been in England last week with us trying to strike a deal. Its hardly been 'doing the rounds for a while'. If it was im sure it would have been mentioned more than once..

As for could have done it a 'month ago yet nothing'.. He only became a free agent under 2 weeks ago.

Just seen a tweet from an Argentinian journalist claiming that we are in negotiations Claudio Yacob. Really not sure what we are about here cannot see us signing Yacob and Doumbia assuming we retain all of our current central midfielders.

You had said "now it's hit the foreign press, it's only a matter of time before it comes out". Im just saying it already was out, from a usually reliable journalist, although maybe now it will gather more momentum.

Madeley says on his twitter that tomorrow's express and star will have news of another central midfielder. Will probably be Claudio Yacob.

Yes but there is a massive difference between media saying we are scouting a player and media saying we are in talks with a player. We scout hundreds of players, many that we never formally approach. Its much bigger news the fact we are actually in talks.

I think enough of a link to be worth his own thread.

http://www.expressandstar.com/sport/west-bromwich-albion-fc/2012/07/14/claudio-yacob-on-west-brom-radar/?

Might be an option for Central midfield instead of Doumbia or Boatang. At this point impossible to judge which would be the best option as none of them played Premier League football so all would have to adjust to the league and living in new country.

Isn't it great to be seriously linked with players of this calibre?!

But sufficiently unknown that it's a trademark Albion transfer. The fact we admitted we followed Yassine El Ghanassy for two years (baring in mind he's only 22), proves our Scouting network is superb.

Just tweeted by CL:

@chrislepkowski: #wba hope to complete signing of Yacob early next week. Deal currently embroiled in red tape. If this is overcome, good chance he'll sign

He also explained that this is why the Doumbia deal wasn't as clear cut from our end.

It shows how far we've come to be linked with players like this.

My only concern is it generally takes a while for South Americans to settle over here, especially as he plays in Argentina.

That's the only negative though.
