Report: West Brom to target six signings following completion of James McClean deal

West Brom

West Brom are reportedly keen on signing six more players this summer.

The Baggies look set to wrap up a deal for James McClean in the coming days, for a £1.5 million fee, and a report in the Birmingham Mail has outlined their plans for the rest of the summer.

McClean is set to arrive from relegated Championship side Wigan, and Albion want to bring in six more players after the completion of that deal.

Tony Pulis is keen on attacking reinforcements, as well as a new goalkeeper, and the report references the long standing interest in the likes of Demba Ba, Matt Phillips and Crystal Palace stopper Wayne Hennessey.

Phillips appears to be the most likely deal to go through, with the Baggies showing an interest in him for a number of months. The Daily Mail reported that the Midlands outfit would be preparing a £5 million offer for him, although QPR are said to value the Scottish winger at roughly £7 million.

The Birmingham Mail report also indicates that Pulis is keen on two new full-backs, with the left-back position currently incredibly weak, although there are no indications as to who has been targeted.

The likes of Ciaran Clark and Robbie Brady have both been linked in recent weeks, as per the Star and Mirror respectively, and both are able to operate at left-back if needed.

West Brom are clearly keen on strengthening this summer, and it looks as if the completion of the deal for McClean should see a flurry of transfer deals wrapped up in the coming weeks.
