West Bromwich Albion have been in contact with Bournemouth to find out how much Josh King would cost, according to a report from the Express and Star.
The Baggies look set to be one of the busier Premier League clubs before the window shuts until January. Slaven Bilic’s men have endured a tough start to life back in the top flight.
And it does appear that signing a new striker will be their priority.
The Express and Star reports that they are interested in King. And it seems that they have made their first move in their bid to nab the Norwegian.
According to the Express and Star, West Brom have spoken to the Cherries to find out how much they would need to pay for King.
The report notes that Bournemouth want £10 million for the 28-year-old. The Express and Star claims that Bilic’s men would be unable to pay that figure, but the Cherries would be open to receiving the fee in instalments.
It would arguably be a big boost for West Brom to land King. He has scored 48 Premier League goals since arriving at the Vitality Stadium.
And it does not appear that he would cost a significant sum. So it is arguably a no-brainer for the Baggies to make a move to bring him to the Hawthorns.
