West Brom manager Steve Clarke is interested in bringing Chelsea reject Florent Malouda to the Hawthorns, according to the Daily Mirror.

Malouda arrived at Chelsea for a fee of £13.5million back in 2007 and was at times considered a key member of the first-team squad. 

Last season however he had become surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and only managed one appearance under Roberto Di Matteo and Rafa Benitez.

The French winger left Chelsea on a Bosman this summer as his contract was up and Clarke is said to be of the belief that the 33-year-old still has something to offer the Premier League.

The potential deal is made all the more feasible given the fact that Malouda has worked with Clarke before during the latter’s stint as Chelsea’s assistant manager. 

Perhaps more crucially ex-team-mate and fellow countryman Nicolas Anelka has recently signed for the Baggies last week.

The news of Clarke’s interest in the Chelsea old-boys is a clear signal of West Brom's intent, who had a brilliant season last year in regards to their pre-campaign expectations. 

Clarke is said to have also earmarked Ivorian Solomon Kalou as he looks to strengthen his squad.
