Glasgow Rangers target Grady Diangana is set to complete a move to West Bromwich Albion from West Ham United, as per Sky Sports.
Diangana spent last season on loan at the Hawthorns, and impressed, scoring eight goals and providing seven assists in 30 Championship matches.
The Gers had been linked with a move for the 22-year-old, but it seems he is on the verge of a move to the Midlands outfit. The Baggies are set to pay £18m for his services.
Whilst Diangana would have been an exciting addition to Steven Gerrard’s squad, such a fee would be unrealistic for any team in Scotland to pay, never mind the 54-time Scottish champions – Tore Andre Flo, who signed for the Gers in 2001 for £12m, remains the most expensive purchase for any club north of the border.
Diangana is a versatile player, who can play on both the left and right wing. In terms of the former, Gerrard already has Ryan Kent to fill in that role, but on the right flank he has often played Ianis Hagi, who is more of an attacking midfielder.
Would you like to sign Grady Diangana?
Someone to play wide in front of James Tavernier would still be useful to Gerrard – but £4.05m-valued Diangana (as per Transfermarkt) was never realistically going to be that man.
