West Brom to make move for André-Pierre Gignac

Football News

Reports in the Birmingham Mail claim that West Bromwich Albion are keen to sign French international Andre Pierre Gignac when his contract with Marseille expires at the end of the month. 

Manager Tony Pulis is believed to have travelled to France to watch the player in action for Marseille, and with 20 goals this season, Gignac could be a perfect fit for Pulis' goal-shy Baggies. 

Gignac has often been linked to Premier League clubs, with both Arsenal and Newcastle rumoured to be keen to add the powerful striker to their French connections; however, no move ever materialised and now Gignac appears likely to take a more unorthodox route to English football. 

West Brom have struggled for goals this season, with forward Saido Berahino the only player to reach double figures this term (with 20 in all competitions), and the addition of Gignac should go someway to solving the problem. 

Employed primarily as a target man, Gignac combines aerial power with a genuine finishers sharpness, and he could provide the ideal foil for England Under-21 international Berahino.

Dimitar Berbatov also linked

The Birmingham Mail also links Pulis with a move for Monaco's Dimitar Berbatov, whose contract also expires next month.

However despite his quality and Premier League experience, his high wage demands are likely to be a stumbling block.
