Tony Pulis wants to add to his defensive unit this summer and has already eyed up on potential signing.
The Baggies are one of a number of clubs that are said to be interested in highly-rated Lincoln City centre-back Sean Raggett.
According to the Express, West Ham are in pole position to land the 23-year-old defender who caught the eye for the Imps this season as they secured promotion back to the Football League and reached the FA Cup quarter-final.
West Ham have already seen a £125,000 offer turned down by the League Two outfit for their star defender while League One outfits Peterborough and Oxford United have had bids in the region of £250,000 rejected, and you can find the best League One betting odds here with OddsDigger.
Raggett has a release clause in his contract which stands at £350,000 which would need to be met in full before Lincoln would allow him to leave the club this summer.
