says that he has interest in signing

Christian Benteke

but he is not sure if the player will be available.

“I am not sure if Christian is available, that’s down to the head of recruitment and (technical director) Luke (Dowling).

“If they came to me and said Christian is available…I’m not sure that’s the case at the moment as I think everybody would like to keep hold of their strikers, particularly in the Premier League.

“I couldn’t enlighten you at this moment but if he is available, I’d be interested because we all know I’m looking for a front-man if at all possible, but I’ve not been given any indication that that is the case.

“We’ve had many other players on the radar, many abroad, but we’ve not been able to secure that particular player yet,” said the Baggies boss, whose fight for Premier League survival continues with a home game against Manchester City on Tuesday night.

“We must keep our ear open on the transfer market to try and secure the signings that we want – we want two more if we can possibly achieve that.

“I’d emphasize we have to try and get the right quality, but it’s difficult in our position. Some might not want to join the fight and the position where we are in the Premier League.”
