West Brom are closing in on the £7m signing of striker Rudy Gestede from Aston Villa, who are reportedly lining up Brentford frontman Scott Hogan as a replacement, according to The Sun.
Baggies boss Tony Pulis is confident of boosting his attacking options with the Benin international who moved to Villa Park from Blackburn for £6m in 2015.
The 28-year-old has scored four times this season and has also drawn interest from Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough.
Villa boss Steve Bruce will move quickly to replace Gestede if he leaves, with proven Championship striker Hogan his primary target to replenish his side’s push for promotion.
The Benin forward has also been attracting interest from Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough.
Rudy Gestede is understood to have attended Boro’s 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool last week.
