Uruguay captain Diego Lugano is heading to England for talks over a possible move to West Bromwich Albion.
The 32-year-old has emerged as the Baggies’ latest summer transfer target.
Lugano is surplus to requirements at Paris Saint Germain and spent most of last season on loan with Malaga.
The Baggies are targeting extra competition for first-choice centre-backs Jonas Olsson and Gareth McAuley and see Lugano as the man to provide it.
The move comes after they failed in a bid to sign Napoli centre-back Federico Fernandez on loan.
Lugano’s contract in the French capital expires next summer and he could be available for as little as £1m.
