Report: West Brom ready to sell Anichebe and Ideye to make room for Marseille star

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

Tony Pulis is planning big changes at the Hawthorns this summer, with French international Andre Pierre-Gignac a major target.

West Brom are seeking to make major adjustments in their attacking department this summer, according to a report in the Express and Star. 

Tony Pulis is eager to put his stamp on the first team in what is his first summer as Baggies boss, and he is prepared to cut both Victor Anichebe and Brown Ideye as part of attempts to revitalise an attack that often had to rely on young striker Saido Berahino last season.

Former Everton man Victor Anichebe has been a disappointment since arriving at the Hawthorns in 2013, managing less than ten goals in those two seasons, and failing to net more than three times in the Premier League this season.

Ideye has also failed to justify his club record price tag, and though he had a positive spell in the middle of February, he still ended the season with just seven goals in total.

The ex-Stoke boss is set to continue his pursuit of Marseille striker Andre Pierre-Gignac as he looks to bring in players to replace those that have struggled in for the Midlands side, and the Express and Star have said the Welshman is looking for buyers for the two attackers he is looking to cut.
