Report: Sunderland and West Brom enquire about signing Jean-Christophe Bahebeck

Supporters - PSG

Sunderland and West Brom have reportedly asked about signing PSG striker Jean-Christophe Bahebeck.

According to the Daily Mail, Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion are amongst four English clubs to have asked about signing Paris Saint-Germain forward Jean-Christophe Bahebeck.

The 22-year-old joined SPG as a teenager, making his way up through the ranks in the French capital before loan spells with Troyes and Valenciennes.

A highly-rated youngster who has represented France at Under-16, 18, 19, 20 and 21 levels, Bahebeck has found it difficult to gain first team football at PSG recently.

Laurent Blanc has the likes of Edinson Cavani, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Lucas Moura and Zlatan Ibrahimovic at his disposal, making it difficult for a youngster like Bahebeck to make an impact.

Now, the Daily Mail report that four English clubs have asked about taking Bahebeck on loan - Everton, Sunderland, West Brom and Championship side Fuham.

The latter are unlikely to strike a deal for Bahebeck given the Premier League interest, with Sunderland in need of striking reinforcements ahead of the new seasons, as Steven Fletcher, Connor Wickham and Danny Graham all struggled to find the back of the net last term.

Meanwhile, West Brom could consider Bahebeck as a potential replacement for Saido Berahino should the highly-rated forward leave The Hawthorns this summer, with the two players somewhat similar in the way they have good pace and technical ability.

Whether PSG are willing to loan Bahebeck out remains to be seen, but it appears that a queue is forming for his signature, with the forward needing first team football at this stage of his career.
