Hawthorns side hoping former Watford man can fill void left by Romelu Lukaku’s return to Chelsea.
West Brom boss Steve Clarke has made an offer for Udinese striker Matej Vydra according to the Daily Mail.
The Baggies boss is keen to supplement his attack and wishes to bring in the Czech Republic forward on a season long loan deal, no doubt hoping that the 21 year old can replicate the efforts of Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian being a roaring success during his temporary move to the Hawthorns last season.
Vydra was equally successful during his season at Watford last term, one of many loanees the Championship side brought in their last campaign, the lethal finisher managing 22 goals to help Gianfranco Zola’s side to the play-offs.
West Brom have brought in veteran Nicolas Anelka but have apparently failed in their efforts to bring in another former Chelsea man, Salomon Kalou, with Clarke stating;
‘I don’t think anybody has been able to persuade Salomon to come out of France.
‘The closer you get to the start of our season, the closer you get to the start of the French season. It doesn’t look as if that one will happen, but that’s normal in any transfer season.’
