West Brom have been linked with a number of Championship talents since their return to the Premier League a fortnight ago.

The Baggies dragged themselves across the line for automatic promotion and will need to strengthen their squad accordingly before it kicks off on the 12th of September.

Slaven Bilic was pictured speaking to Eberechi Eze after the 2-2 draw against Queens Park Rangers, and that could be an interesting move.

The Guardian has reported that the Albion and Aston Villa are among a number of clubs interested in the QPR playmaker.

It is suggested that the 22-year-old will cost up to £20million, and that could be a potential stumbling block.

The Sun journalist Alan Nixon has shared his doubt over a potential move to the Hawthorns, claiming the Baggies won’t have much to spend this summer.

“For Eze? Been on,” he said. “But don’t have fortunes to spend.”

The Express and Star journalist Joseph Masi did share on Monday that significant investment from Guochuan Lai will be “not forthcoming” this summer, so Nixon’s claim certainly matches that.

Eze was superb last season in a side that mainly struggled for consistency. According to WhoScored, he was the third-best player in the Championship behind Said Benrahma and Matheus Pereira.

With a number of Premier League clubs interested, it could appear like the Baggies could be priced out of a move for the impressive Eze.
