The latest batch of players to have been linked with West Bromwich Albion.

Mario Lemina

The transfer window continues to be a frustrating one for West Bromwich Albion and their manager Tony Pulis but the rumours persist.

Here we take a look at the top five players linked with thee Baggies this week:

Mario Lemina (Birmingham Mail)

West Brom were said to be keeping a close eye on Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina; however, his £15million asking price has been deemed too high by Baggies boss Pulis.

Lemina is said to be keen to move on to play regular first-team football, but Juventus are seemingly going to have to drop his proposed transfer fee considerably if he is to make a move to The Hawthorns.

Ibrahim Amadou (France Football)

West Brom have allegedly made an opening offer for Lille midfielder Ibrahim Amadou.

The Baggies are said to have bid £11.7million for a player who only joined the Ligue 1 club in 2015.

There is no suggestion as to how the bid has gone down in France thus far.

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Lewis Dunk is firmly on West Brom’s radar but the Baggies will have to pay big for the centre-back.

Pulis failed with an £8million move for the Seagulls star earlier this month yet he will do everything he can to ultimately secure the defensive reinforcement.

Lamine Kone scores the second goal for Sunderland
