Baggies lining up double swoop

Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo is keen to bolster his squad ahead

of the new Premier League season and has set his sights on defender

Wilson. The 22-year has already attracted interest from Fulham and

Newcastle this summer following Pompey’s relegation to the

Championship. The Irishman stated earlier this month that he was

happy to stay at Fratton Park – but the cash-strapped club could be

ready to part with his services. Di Matteo has already brought in

goalkeeper Boaz Myhill from Hull City and looks set to secure the

services of full-back Nicky Shorey and Cameroon international

Tchoyi. Tchoyi has been linked with a move to the Premier League

for some time and it appears the Baggies are poised to win the race

for his signature. Fulham, Blackburn and Wolves were all thought to

be tracking the left-sided winger, but West Brom have jumped to the

head of the queue for his signature with Tchoyi expected to ink a

three-year deal at The Hawthorns. Red Bull Salzburg were keen to

keep the 27-year-old, but with just one year left on his contract

they have decided to cash in on the African. Tchoyi is expected to

arrive in England next week to tie up his move.
