West Brom manager Tony Pulis is hoping he can use the £12million received for Saido Berahino to strengthen his squad in the final days of the window.
It’s reported that Pulis is after a striker and a centre-back.
Pulis said: “I’ve spoken to the chairman John Williams about it and John is keen on us to get a couple in.”
“The squad is quite thin and we need to do that.
“But in respect of us getting him (Ighalo), no. I think Watford want too much so I don’t think we’ll be in that one.”
Albion have also hit a brick wall trying to tempt Ashley Young from Manchester United.
The winger is mulling over a big-money move to Chinese club Shandong Luneng, who have offered him £16m net salary over three years.
