West Bromwich Albion are interested in Hull City player Sam Clucas.
The Premier League side have reportedly enquired about the player from the Championship side. However, Burnley, Leicester City and new Premier League boys Newcastle United also want him.
After capturing Jake Livermore from City in the winter window, Tony Pulis seemed to be focusing on Clucas. The Albionwere linked with a move for the player last month but until now they have not submitted their bids, as other clubs.
Reports in England say Clucas’ valuation is in the range of £8 million to £10 million. Clucas was one of the best players at Hull last term before they were relegated. He played 41 times in all competitions.
Magpies boss Rafa Benitez has been linked to the player but the Championship title holders are slow in the transfer market so far. Pulis stands a good chance of snapping up the Leicester City product who is likely going to exit the KCOM Stadium this summer. Following Darren Fletcher’s move to Stoke City, Albion could go hard to get the player to fill the void in central midfield.
Aside losing Fletcher, West Brom could lose CallumMcManaman this summer as well. He has fallen out of favour with Pulis and has not featured since April last year. The winger joined in 2015 for around £5 million. After going out on loan to Sheffield Wednesday last term where he barely made an impact, the player is seeking a regular club where he can play a key role.
If Pulis seals the deal on time, McManaman could join the tour to Austria to sort out fitness concerns ahead of the new season. The Albionwould be looking at replicating the success of last season and probably superseding it.
