According to The Daily Mail, West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Josh King from Bournemouth this January.
As the Baggies lie 19th in the Premier League table with just one win in their first 17 games in the competition, Sam Allardyce is wasting no time in attempting to bring in new recruits. Robert Snodgrass is reportedly set for a medical ahead of an 18-month move to the Hawthorns, and they are now looking at bringing in King.
Not long ago, the £9.9m-valued Norway international (Transfermarkt) was a target for Manchester United. He has struggled so far this campaign in the Championship, failing to score in eight matches in the second-tier, but he managed 42 goals in the Premier League in his last four seasons. Not bad going while playing for a side that spent most of that period towards the bottom of the division.
