West Brom Could Miss Out On The Star As Another Club Leads The Chase

West Brom transfer target Sory Kaba is wanted by six Championship clubs this summer, and Watford have emerged as favourites to sign him, according to Mike McGrath.

The Daily Telegraph journalist shared via his personal Twitter account on 6 August that the Hornets are leading the chase for the £2million Midtjylland striker, with plenty of interest in his services following a successful loan spell with Cardiff.

West Brom were linked with a move for Kaba as they look to do deals on the cheap this summer, with the Mirror [1 August] reporting the club were hopeful of beating Leeds and Cardiff to the hitman.

West Brom will be aware that new faces are still needed at the club following the arrivals of Jeremy Sarmiento and Josh Maja, after suffering an opening-day defeat at the hands of Blackburn Rovers, with strikers still the apparent priority despite the arrival of Maja.

Neither of the new Baggies signings started the game against Blackburn, although Sarmiento appeared from the bench, so the club will be hoping for improvements when their fresh faces can be added to the team from the start.

Watford began their Championship season with a 4-0 win over QPR, and are looking to keep their early success going by beating Championship opponents to the signing of Kaba, although he could be offered a starring role at the Hawthorns, so a deal may still be possible.

Kaba scored eight goals in 17 appearances for Cardiff last season, despite the side’s struggles in the league, and was a big part in keeping them away from the threat of relegation. This form has attracted plenty of suitors and was enough to prove he could do a job for West Brom.


Hopefully, things can change quickly.
