AFC Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe has been linked with a potential transfer to West Bromwich Albion.
The move, if true, would see Afobe return to the Black Country after he left Wolverhampton Wanderers for a then club record fee of around £9million in January 2016 to join AFC Bournemouth.
During his time in the Midlands, Afobe was a regular goalscorer netting 22 league goals in 46 Championship appearances for Wolves.
After making the move to the south coast, Afobe scored 3 goals in his first 4 appearances for AFC Bournemouth, but then suffered a goal scoring drought which spanned from March through to December.
So far this season he has made 11 Premier League appearances, but has only started once, which was the weekends trip to Burnley.
The Mirror have reported that as Afobe acts as ‘back-up to Callum Wilson and Joshua King at the Vitality Stadium’, West Brom see him as a potential January signing.
Given the faith Eddie Howe has shown in Afobe lately though, I doubt there’s much to this. – Join the conversation here.
