West Brom have been linked with this striker as Slaven Bilic hunts more recruits
West Brom have been linked with a move for Senegal international Moussa Konate.
The striker, who plays for Amiens in France, has been away at the African Nations Cup this summer but upon his return is a wanted man.
Ligue 1 Amiens, who finished 15th in France’s top flight last season, signed Konate from Swiss side Sion in 2017 and he’s netted 20 goals over the course of the last two seasons, including seven last term.
The Sun claim that Albion boss Slaven Bilic, who intends to accelerate Albion’s recruitment drive, is keen on Konate and that the 26-year-old will cost the Baggies around £5m.

Konate made his name at the 2012 summer Olympics in London, where he found the net five times – including against Team GB.
He still has two years left on his current contract with Amiens.
Having sold Jay Rodriguez and Craig Dawson to Premier League clubs, and having finally moved on Salomon Rondon – he’s reunited with Rafael Benitez at Dalian Yifang in the Chinese Super League – Albion and Bilic have moved quickly to spend a portion of their generated funds by sealing moves for Kenneth Zohore from Cardiff and Semi Ajayi of Rotherham.
There are still a number of positions that need strengthening, however, not least at the top of the field where Zohore and Hal Robson-Kanu are the only senior forwards at the club.
Albion are looking for goals in the market having lost Rodriguez and Dwight Gayle, the latter returning to Newcastle at the end of his loan.
He is likely to cost suitors around £15m, this summer.
