According to a report from Haberturk, West Bromwich Albion have offered a deal of €8million (£7million) for Trabzonspor midfielder Okay Yokuslu.

The Baggies sacked manager Tony Pulis earlier this month, and only appointed his replacement in Alan Pardew on Wednesday, but speculation already surrounds the club's January transfer activity.

The Daily Mail reported on Tuesday that West Brom are eyeing a deal for Krasnodar midfielder Charles Kabore – but today, it's another midfielder being linked with a move to The Hawthorns.

Turkish newspaper Haberturk report that West Brom have submitted a bid of €8million (£7million) for Trabzonspor star Okay Yokuslu in the hope of luring him to the Premier League.

However, it's claimed that Trabzonspor don't want to sell in January, and would only be willing to listen to offers for the midfielder at the end of the season.

Yokuslu, 23, has excelled for Trabzonspor since his 2015 move from Kayserispor, notching nine goals in 86 appearances whilst also earning nine caps for the Turkish national team.

The 6ft 3in holding midfielder not only possesses great size and strength in front of the back four, but also has enough technical ability to dictate the game.

At just £7million, Yokuslu could be a bargain for Pardew and West Brom, but they may have to play a waiting game before they can land him, with Trabzonspor reluctant to do business in January.
