West Brom In Talks to Sign Swedish International Markus Rosenberg

Baggies keen on former Ajax and Werder Bremen forward.

ALBION have turned their attentions back to Markus Rosenberg, with the striker due for talks with Baggies officials this afternoon.

The 29-year-old Sweden international will discuss terms and undergo a medical later today after arriving in the country this morning.

The Baggies have been watching the player, whose contract with Werder Bremen expired in the summer, for some time.

Initially Albion were keen to explore other options but have opted to step-up their pursuit of Rosenberg after other deals did not materialise.

Experienced forward Markus Rosenberg is currently a free agent having been released by Werder Bremen prior to the Euro 2012 finals, where he took part in two of Sweden’s three group games, and West Brom are clearly interested in signing the 29 year old.

Steve Clarke has been relatively quiet during the transfer window but has seen the Baggies bring in Birmingham City keeper Ben Foster on a permanent deal after the England man impressed on loan last term. The newly installed West Brom boss has also signed Belgian international Yassine El Ghanassy on a season long loan so perhaps the Scot feels more additions are needed ahead of the new season.

Rosenberg has been a relatively consistent, if not prolific, forward over the years, and impressed in the early stages of his Bundesliga career, which followed a steady stint in Holland with Ajax.

The powerfully built forward may well see his physical stature lend itself well to life in the English top tier.
