WEST BROM want to buy flying winger Grady Diangana from West Ham in a £10million deal.
Diangana has dazzled in a loan spell but now Slaven Bilic wants to tie him down permanently as he aims for promotion.
Hammers are willing to sell their prospect at the right price to raise funds and the Baggies are first in the queue to land him.
The 21-year-old has scored five times as West Brom sit second in the league, although they haven’t won any of their last seven league games.
They’ve accumulated just three points from their last five matches.
Diangana has missed the last two matches through injury and will be keen to return in a bid to help turn around the club’s form.
The poor run has seen them be replaced by Leeds United at the top of the table and Nottingham Forest are only two points behind in third.
A poor result on Saturday could see them drop out of the top two for the first time since September.
The Baggies had gone on a 14-match unbeaten run but since then, their form has dropped dramatically.
They host bottom of the table Luton Town on Saturday, which would present a great opportunity to return to winning ways.
Bilic has just sealed a deal for Callum Robinson from Sheffield United but wants to strengthen his attack even more.
