Report: West Brom could lose Brown Ideye; Trabzonspor keeping close tabs

West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion could face a battle to keep Brown Ideye amid interest from Trabzonspor.

According to talkSPORT, Turkish outfit Trabzonspor are keeping close tabs on West Brom's record signing Brown Ideye.

Amid speculation linking Baggies youngster Saido Berahino with a move to Tottenham - as reported by the Mirror - according to reports in Turkey, the Premier League outfit may now have to fight on two fronts, with team-mate Ideye also a wanted man.

Super Lig club Trabzonspor are after a new strike partner for the perennial Oscar Cardozo and reckon West Brom's record signing, who cost the club £10million from Dynamo Kiev last summer - according to the Birmingham Mail - could fit the club's transfer criteria. 

Would he be a loss for Tony Pulis?

It proved to be a season of two halves for Ideye in 2014/15.

He scored just two goals in his first 17 appearances for the club, prior to Tony Pulis' arrival, before netting on four occasions in the English manager's first eight games in charge.

The Nigeria international ended the season in fine form, with seven goals in all competitions. 

Considering he played just seven full games throughout the entire Premier League campaign, while making 11 appearances as a substitute, his final goal tally (four) was evidently hampered by a lack of game time. 

He could emerge as a key asset for the Baggies ahead of his second domestic campaign in England.

If Tony Pulis is to lose Saido Berahino to a Premier League rival this summer, he will be even more anxious to retain Ideye's services.
