West Bromwich Albion boss eyes Ligue 1 Liverpool target on possible free transfer

Posted by

West Brom boss Tony Pulis is targeting a sensational move for Marseille forward Andre-Pierre Gignac – who is out of contract this summer – and plans on making him the highest paid player at the club, according to reports in The Sun.

Pulis is naturally a big spender and sanctioned many sizable moves whilst at Stoke City. He could get a real bargain here however, and if he can potentially get Gignac on a Bosman deal then you can certainly understand his interest.

According to the report, West Brom are willing to pay him £12m over three years in wages – the same amount Marseille might have demanded for a transfer fee. After a late January move for Carlton Cole failed due to a complicated domino affect (via the Daily Mail), Pulis’ search for a striker is set to resume.

The Express report that Gignac was a target for Liverpool and Arsenal earlier this season, so Pulis may face competition for his signature.

Brown Ideye has been a pleasant surprise for the Baggies, but Pulis has never been one to rest on his laurels. He seems intent, if reports are to be believed, on adding a top class striker to his squad this summer – a box the French star certainly ticks.
