Report: West Brom linked with move for Colombian striker Adrian Ramos

West Brom

West Bromwich Albion are reportedly eyeing up the Borussia Dortmund man.

According to the Birmingham Mail, the Baggies are eyeing up Adrian Ramos from Borussia Dortmund, who is valued at roughly £10 million.

A striker, Ramos only moved to the Westfalenstadion last summer, signing from Hertha BSC, but he did not enjoy a great season for the club. 29 games brought six goals and two assists, and new head coach Thomas Tuchel is said to be keen on selling him before the start of the 2015/16 campaign.

A Colombian international, with 35 caps to his name, Ramos is wanted by Tony Pulis, who is looking to add attacking recruits to his West Brom side. Saido Berahino was the only consistent goalscorer last term, and Pulis wants to guarantee the young striker has both cover and competition next term.

The Bundesliga side are said to value Ramos at £10 million, but there is no indication as to whether West Brom are willing to pay that fee for the striker.

Who is Adrian Ramos?

Ramos is a 29-year-old forward who has spent much of his career in Germany, playing for five years with Hertha BSC prior to his move to Dortmund last summer, scoring 65 goals and registering 40 assists in 176 games.

He is an all-round striker, able to play as a lone striker, or as part of a partnership, and could prove a great mentor for Berahino - who has shown adeptness in various striking situations with the Baggies.

£10 million is a large fee to pay for a 29-year-old striker with no prior experience of English football, and with Ramos’s recent goal record - which is acceptable rather than outstanding - it will be unlikely in the Baggies move for him unless a potential fee can be lowered.
