West Brom will try and wrap up the signing of Okay Yokuslu as soon as possible but face a number of hurdles in getting a permanent deal over the line.
That is the view of former Albion and Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the prospect of the 27-year-old putting pen to paper on permanent terms at the Hawthorns this summer.
Yokuslu has hugely impressed in his eight Premier League appearances since arriving on loan from Celta de Vigo in January.
As quoted by Birmingham Live, Sam Allardyce revealed signing the 31-times Turkey international permanently would be the ‘first thing on the agenda’ if Albion beat the drop.
However, the Baggies face an uphill battle to secure their Premier League status, as they are 19th and nine points from safety, with eight games remaining.
When asked to assess West Brom’s chances of signing Yokuslu permanently, Campbell told Football Insider:
“I think they will be trying to get that deal wrapped up as soon as the window opens but these transfers are never simple.
“I think a few clubs will have their eye on Yokuslua and he would be well within his right to see how the land lies, what else could be out there for him.
“He is entitled to see who else is interested in signing him this summer because he has proved that he is a Premier League quality player and a great one at that. There will be a number of clubs monitoring his situation.”
