Bringing in another top quality centre-back remains a top summer priority for Tony Pulis.
Aware that Jonas Olsson will leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires and that at 37, Gareth McAuley hasn’t got many years left in the tank, Pulis is laying the foundations for a major summer coup.
According to Turkish source Hurriyet (h/t Sport Witness), West Brom are interested in signing Fenerbahce defender Simon Kjaer.
The Baggies made an approach to sign him in the January window but Kjaer decided to snub the move for the time being with concerns over the Baggies’ Premier League status.
Now sitting comfortably in eighth place, there are no such worries anymore.
Serie A giants Inter Milan are also interested in the Danish centre-back and are ready to offer €14m to sign him in the summer, but the Super Lig outfit are holding out for a deal closer to €20m to sell their star defender.
An experienced international, Kjaer has played in the top leagues in France, Italy, Germany and now Turkey, offering Pulis and the Baggies a quality option to anchor their defence with.
