Hawthorns side look to invest in squad.
West Brom are reportedly lining up moves for Norwich City midfield pair Robert Snodgrass and Wes Hoolahan, according to the Express and Star.
Baggies manager Steve Clarke is eager to bolster his midfield this summer with more creative players to help make his side more efficient this season, following the loss of Romelu Lukaku who has returned to parent club Chelsea. Following an influx of new faces at Carrow Road, it’s rumoured that both Hoolahan and Snodgrass are available at the right price.
Snodgrass, who has been linked with a move away already this summer, played an integral part in Norwich’s success last season, scoring the most direct freekicks in the Premier League, he was a perennial threat from set-pieces. Hoolahan also played a key role, but has fallen further down the Norwich pecking order this season.
West Brom are also reportedly interested in signing Victor Moses from Chelsea. The Nigerian winger joined from Wigan last season but was used sparingly. The club have since brought in Andre Schurrle from Bayer Leverkusen, and Moses is expected to follow fellow winger Marko Marin out of the club on loan. The Baggies are pushing hard to sign a winger this summer, having failed to bring Salomon Kalou to the club.
The report also claims that Aston Villa are keen on signing Ryan Shawcross from Stoke. The £10million-rated defender has impressed at Stoke, and Villa’s defense was very poor last season, and they need to bring in improvements if they hope for a more successful season.
