West Brom are looking to tie up a deal to sign Trevoh Chalobah.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at French club Lorient, having previously had spells on loan at Huddersfield and Ipswich.
Chalobah is now set to leave Chelsea on a permanent basis, having been unable to break into the Blues’ first team.
He is the younger brother of Nathaniel Chalobah, who was also at Chelsea before moving on – in his case to Watford.
Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud appears to be on the verge of signing for AC Milan.
