West Brom are thought to be extremely interested in signing Celtic target Romaine Sawyers from Brentford.
That’s according to The Telegraph’s John Percy, who claims that the Baggies have set their sights on a £3 million deal for the energetic midfielder and are hoping a move can gather pace in the coming days.
Celtic themselves are keen on bringing the 27-year-old to Scotland ahead of the new season and had a £2 million bid turned down in recent weeks.
The Saint Kitts and Nevis international was a regular for the Bees last season, which has resulted in numerous sides showing interest, with Leeds United also tracking the box-to-box midfielder.
Sawyers has just 12 months left on his current Brentford deal, so a Griffin Park exit this summer appears to be a real possibility.
If the midfielder decides to move on, Celtic may well have the edge over the Baggies, however, the Hoops will have to match West Brom’s likely offer.
Why Sawyers should consider Celtic over West Brom
Sawyers would be able to showcase his talents on the European stage, with Celtic regularly qualifying for the Champions League group stages.
Regular starting spot
The Brentford man could receive more game time at Celtic Park than The Hawthorns, something which will more than likely be key in his decision.
Chance to win regular silverware
Sawyers would be handed the chance to win silverware on a regular basis if he moved to Celtic, with the Hoops winning nine major honours over the past three seasons.
Become a Celtic favourite
Sawyers has all the attributes to become a real fan favourite at Celtic Park in front of a passionate crowd on a weekly basis.
