West Bromwich Albion are set to make an offer worth £3m for Brentford’s Romaine Sawyers according to a report from The Telegraph.
The first news of transfer activity from West Brom was confirmed this week with Jonny Evans completing a £3m move to Leicester City. And with more expected to leave over the next few weeks, West Brom need to get on with signing the players that will get them back into the Premier League. Reports have already linked them to Bristol City duo Aden Flint and Bobby Reid but now they could go for another talented midfielder.
They are interested in signing Sawyers who was once a West Brom player. However he didn’t make a single appearance for the Baggies and after loan spells with Port Vale and Shrewsbury Town, he completed a move to local side Walsall. He would become a star player for the Saddlers and earned himself a move to Brentford, following head coach Dean Smith. He has since established himself as a top player for the Bees which is why he has been noticed by his former side.
And Brentford’s will to keep Sawyers looks set to be tested in the future. West Brom are set to make a £3m bid for the midfielder in an attempt to bring him back to The Hawthorns. The club have plenty of parachute payments to spend this summer and are using it on players who are proven in the Sky Bet Championship. But Brentford will be keen to keep one of their star players so it may take even more than £3m to sign him.
