Albion were today attempting a swoop for Everton striker Victor Anichebe after confirming the signing of Morgan Amalfitano from Marseille.
The Baggies have had a £3.5m bid rejected for 25-year-old Nigeria forward Anichebe, who is also interesting Stoke, but the deal isn’t dead.
Albion are also interested in Sunderland's Stephane Sessegnon, who is available for £5m with the Baggies believed to be looking at a club-record permanent switch.
They are also on the trail of Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella, with the 20-year-old available on a season’s loan, although it’s unlikely they will land all three and Amalfitano.
Hawthorns sources have played down links with Tottenham’s Jermain Defoe.
