West Bromwich Albion are eyeing up a move for Hull City striker Abel Hernandez, according to the Birmingham Mail.

The 28-year-old frontman has been impressive this term, already equalling his goals tally of the 2014-15 campaign – when the Tigers were last in the Premier League.

The Uruguay international has played an important part for Marco Silva’s side in their bid to avoid relegation – including a brace during the 3-1 win over Bournemouth at the KCOM Stadium.

The former Palermo talisman was a major factor in Hull’s successful promotion last season – netting 20 times in 39 Championship appearances.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis has already raided the northern club during this transfer window – snapping up midfielder Jake Livermore for £10million, and is now looking to add extra firepower to his impressive attack.

West Brom have already surpassed their goal tally at the Hawthorns this term than that of the entire 2015-16 season, and are only four away from the Albion’s overall total last campaign.

However, with Salomon Rondon and Hal Robson-Kanu the only two natural strikers at the club – as well as only netting nine times between them, Pulis is keen to inject variety into his squad.
