Report: West Brom leading chase for Hull winger Ahmed Elmohamady

West Brom

The Egyptian star is also said to be interesting Newcastle United, Watford and Stoke City after a strong campaign last season.

West Bromwich Albion are one of the sides being closely linked with Hull City winger Ahmed Elmohamady, according to the Mail.

The Egyptian is much in demand after the Tigers' relegation from the Premier League in May, 

There are as many as four Premier League teams chasing the former Sunderland player say the Mail, who report that the Baggies and Stoke are two of the favourites, while Newcastle and Watford are also interested, and Sevilla and Benfica are following the situation from elsewhere in Europe.

Elmohamady can play all up the right wing, often featuring at fullback and wingback as well as a more orthodox wide man, and last season he was the seventh best crosser in the division despite playing for a side that narrowly slipped into the Championship.

West Brom have been on the lookout for a winger throughout the summer, with a move for QPR's Matt Phillips failing to come off.

Where Elmohamady may be an attractive option for Tony Pulis is his ability to play further back, making him a useful alternative at right back, where the Welshman predominantly utilised central defender Craig Dawson towards the end of last season, as well as further forward.

The Mail state a valuation of £3 million for the Egypt international, which will leave funds for Pulis to use elsewhere in the squad.
