After beating a clutch of clubs to the signature of Dundee United starlet Scott Allan today, Roy Hodgson's plans to strengthen the squad now revolve around the flanks of his midfield.
It is believed that the West Bromwich Albion boss has targeted Porto's Uruguayan winger Cristian Rodriguez as the man to add some creativity to his side, who currently lie 15th in the Barclays Premier league table.
Club sporting director Dan Ashworth was sent to Portugal at the weekend to watch Rodriguez in Porto's clash with Sporting Lisbon.
If signed, Rodriguez would battle for a place on the Baggies wing with the likes of Jerome Thomas, James Morrison and Chris Brunt.
The tricky winger has spent the majority of his playing career in Portugal, having played for Lisbon giants Benfica in a loan spell from parent club Paris Saint-Germain.
Porto signed the player from PSG back in the summer of 2008 for seven million euros.
Another loan spell, this time in England, may prove appealing to a player that has the experience of playing in three Copa America Championships, whilst racking up 42 appearances for Uruguay.
Affectionately nicknamed 'cebolla', the Spanish word for 'onion', Rodriguez supposedly has the ability to make defenders cry with his neat footwork and skill.
