West Brom boss Steve Clarke sent scouts to track a pair of Marseille talents ahead of a projected move for the duo according to Sports Direct News.

Clarke is desperate to strengthen his attack, especially with Nicolas Anelka considering his future following the unexpected death of his agent, and the Baggies manager has earmarked a move for adaptable midfielder Morgan Amalfitano and forward Jordan Ayew.

Neither player has started a Ligue 1 match this term and Marseille are ready to sell both so as long they do not leave for any of their domestic rivals. Even though neither player is a regular in Elie Baup’s side it could be tough to persuade the international pair to leave a club that has qualified for the Champions League.

West Brom started the season with a home defeat by Southampton and managed a goalless draw with Everton on the weekend, failing to score a goal in their opening two fixtures may well act an impetus for Clarke to invest in his squad.

Amalfitano is a French international who has managed 53 Marseille starts over the past two and a bit seasons 21 year old Jordan Ayew has struggled to make the same sort of impact as his brother Andre and has spent most of his time at the Stade Velodrome side warming the bench.
