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

The 28-year-old frontman has been impressive this term, already equalling his goals tally ofthe2014-15 campaign – when the Tigers were last in the Premier League.

The Uruguay international has played an important part forMarco Silva’s side in their bidto avoid relegation – includinga brace during the 3-1 win over Bournemouth at the KCOM Stadium.

The former Palermo talismanwas a major factor in Hull’ssuccessful promotion last season – netting 20 times in 39 Championship appearances.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis has already raided the northern club duringthis 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 goaltallyat 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 iskeen to injectvariety into his squad.
