West Bromwich Albion are reportedly looking to sign two full backs.
According to the Daily Mail, West Bromwich Albion have failed with one approach for Luton Town defender Jack Stacey – and want Akhmat Grozny’s Milad Mohammadi.
The Baggies haven’t gone gung-ho in the transfer market this summer, as they have brought in a solid centre back in Kyle Bartley, winger Harvey Barnes and two goalkeepers in Sam Johnstone and Jonathan Bond.
Fans are expecting more signings before the transfer deadline, especially with James McClean gone and the likes of Craig Dawson and Salomon Rondon expected to go, and it seems that defensive reinforcements are wanted.
The Daily Mail report that West Brom have submitted one approach for Luton Town defender Jack Stacey, but their move has been snubbed, whilst Milad Mohammadi is a target at left back.
Stacey, 22, came up through the ranks with Reading but made just six appearances for the Royals before heading to Luton on a permanent basis in 2017, following loan spells with Barnet, Carlisle United and Exeter City.
A right back who can also play in midfield, Stacey was a key part of the Luton side which won promotion to League One last season, and it remains to be seen whether West Brom continue to push to bring him to the second tier.
Meanwhile, Akhmat Grozny ace Milad Mohammadi is thought to be a target at left back, with boss Darren Moore potentially looking for competition for first-choice left back Kieran Gibbs.
Mohammadi, 24, hit the headlines at the World Cup for failing and re-thinking a somersault throw-in for Iran against Portugal, but outside of that, he is a pacey, attack-minded left back who has also been linked with Celtic and Rangers – and the Baggies may hope to secure his signature before the transfer deadline.
