The Baggies have been busy in recent days having signed goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard and centre back Jonny Evans from Manchester United, with manager Tony Pulis taking steps to improve his back line.
Now though, it seems that Pulis wants to inject some pace into his side, with QPR wide man Matt Phillips a target ahead of this evening's transfer deadline.
Yet with less than 24 hours to go until the summer transfer window slams shut, Phillips remains at Loftus Road - though West Brom appear determined to change that.
The Daily Mail report that West Brom have lodged a bid to sign Phillips, and it involves Jonas Olsson and Victor Anichebe heading to QPR in exchange.
Swedish veteran Olsson will slip down the pecking order due to Evans' arrival and may seek first team football, whilst striker Anichebe has become the forgotten man since Rickie Lambert and Salomon Rondon joined West Brom.
That deal could be very attractive to QPR, who would be getting two experienced players - who could make an impact in the Championship - in exchange for winger Phillips, who deserves another chance in the Premier League after his promising displays last season.
