West Bromwich Albion are set to do battle with Sheffield United for Peterborough United forward Siriki Dembele according to Birmingham Live.

Dembele is capable of playing as a striker or a winger and is seen by West Brom manager Slaven Bilic as a replacement for departed winger Grady Diangana who has returned to parent club West Ham United.

The forward has enjoyed an impressive season with the Posh and he is also attracting the interest of Sheffield United.

Dembele forged good partnerships with Peterborough United duo Ivan Toney and Mohamed Eisa last season as they finished in the play-off places but ultimately missed out due to the premature curtailment of the season following the Coronavirus pandemic.
