Sporting star on Albion radar
West Brom, Updated:
Sunderland and West Brom are reportedly set to do battle for the services of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Simon Vukcevic.
Vukcevic has caught the eye with some marauding runs form the middle of the park and he would be a good attacking option to add to Roy Hodgson's squad over the summer as he prepares for what looks like another season in the Premier League with the Baggies.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder is, according to reports in Portugal, is looking for a move in the summer because he wants to play in a better league and would fancy a move to England.
However, Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is likely to rival Hodgson for the player, who is set to be available at around Â£2-3 million.
