West Brom want to add Leicester City midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp to their squad before the close of the transfer window and have made an £11 million move for the 23-year-old, according to The Mirror.
The versatile star played a role in the Foxes’ mesmeric Premier League title success last season but was more often than not utilised as a substitute by Claudio Ranieri.
With the English champions adding a number of new players to their ranks this summer, it is unknown how much football Schlupp can expect to receive at the King Power Stadium.
Tony Pulis is clearly eager to add new faces to his contingent, with the potential for Schlupp to move to The Hawthorns seemingly there.

With the ability to operate at both full-back or on the wing, the German-born Ghana international appears like the sort of player that the West Brom boss usually moves for in the transfer window.
Given that Leicester will play in Europe this season and will have an increased number of fixtures as a result, Ranieri will carefully consider his squad before allowing anyone to leave.
