West Brom have been linked with a move for Fenerbahce midfielder Josef de Souza, according to Birmingham Mail.

West Brom have reportedly swooped again for Brazilian midfielder Josef de Souza, 12 months after a deal fell through. The Fenerbahce midfielder who has also been linked with Premiership side Wolves.

However, West Brom could have competition to sign Josef de Souza, with similar offer has been made from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves have been considering an approach last month for de Souza, he made 33 appearances last season and scored three goals for Fenerbahce.

The Baggies were reportedly poised to sign de Souza in last year and had agreed a fee of around £10.6m with Fenerbahce, but the club decided to pull out of the deal as they signed Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak on loan instead of Josef de Souza.

And with only 12 months left on his contract, it is believed that de Souza could be allowed to leave if Fenerbahce can get the right price.

Reportedly, when the midfielder heard the news that his Premier League dream had been denied, de Souza is said to have cried in front of club president Aziz Yildirim when informed that had ended negotiations last year.

Reports suggest that Albion are weighing up another bid for the 29-year-old despite their relegation to the Championship and are willing to pay a similar fee to the one that was agreed ahead of last season.

And with the Brazilian having one year left to run on his contract at Fenerbahce and sporting director Damien Comolli, former transfer adviser at Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal, is said to be willing to sell him this summer, so it could be a great move for both parties.
