Medical imminent: West Brom agree fee as they work on two new forward signings - Sources
West Brom are putting the finishing touches to the capture of Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki today and also hope to add Newcastle United forward Christian Atsu by tomorrow night, Football Insider understands.
Manager Slaven Bilic has made it his priority to strengthen his attack following the alarming slump that threatens the Baggies’ automatic promotion hopes.
A West Brom source has told Football Insider that talks are advancing over the permanent signing of Grosicki, 31, after agreeing an £800,000 fee.
Atsu, 28, is also a firm target Bilic, as first revealed by Football Insider last night.
He has been a regular for Steve Bruce’s side with 22 appearances in all competitions this season, but only eight of those have been as a starter.
