West Brom supporters in the Transfer Tavern are encouraged at Tony Pulis’ ambition to sign new players before the conclusion of the transfer window.
Having signed a new contract with the midlands club last week, Tony Pulis expressed his desire to make five new signings before the transfer window nears its completion.
An area of vital importance to the Welshman is his defence, Ahmed Hegazi has already been signed on loan.
However, it is believed that the 59-year-old is keen to sign another defender.
Our landlord has highlighted Chico Flores as a player who could fulfil Pulis’ ambitions.
The 30-year-old is a free agent having been released by Qatari club Al-Duhail SC.
Despite the questions that will inevitably be raised regarding the intensity and the pedigree of the Qatar Stars League, the Spaniard has amassed considerable experience of playing in some of the most competitive leagues in world football.
Chico Flores has played in Serie A, La Liga and most famous of all the Premier League, where he ascertained his status as a goal-scoring defender.
The former Genoa scored four goals in 75 games for the Swans, and he could rekindle his goal scoring form in Tony Pulis’ side, a team widely renowned for their strength from set-piece situations.
While this transfer will hardly elevate West Brom’s fans into a state of delirium, it could be a cost-effective transfer that would augment the depth that the Baggies have.
