Filip Krovinovic may have an uncertain future at West Bromwich Albion as long as Sam Allardyce is manager.

The 25-year-old was a regular under Slaven Bilic but has been short of playing time since his fellow Croatian was replaced by the 66-year-old incumbent last month, and Greek news outlet To10 claimed that Nottingham Forest, Olympiakos and PAOK are looking to capitalise on the situation.

Forest would like to sign Krovinovic on loan for the second half of the season, but he is currently on loan at West Brom for the remainder of the season and can only switch clubs if his deal is cancelled. To10 believe that the Championship outfit have submitted an offer to parent club Benfica and are waiting for a response, but it remains to be seen whether their pursuit is successful.

Krovinovic has made 11 Premier League appearances for Albion this season but has failed to score or supply an assist . The £29,000-a-week midfielder didn’t miss a game under Bilic but has only amassed 17 minutes of top-flight football in Allardyce’s first four games. (Transfermarkt)


West Brom have scored only one goal since Allardyce took charge, but Krovinovic still seems to be out of the picture, so perhaps he could be open to cutting his loan move short. Where he’ll end up after that is unclear, but Forest have taken the initiative by opening talks.

Krovinovic hasn’t had a prolific impact since joining from Benfica, but Albion can’t afford to lose his attacking talent without lining up a replacement.
