West Bromwich Albion are reportedly keen on signing Galatasaray striker Mbaye Diagne on-loan.

According to the Daily Mail, the Premier League club have turned their attention to Diagne after reported talks with Hoffenheim’s Algerian striker Ishak Belfodil broke down.

Diagne, 29, has scored 11 goals in 19 appearances across all competitions this season, including nine in his last 15 Turkish Super Lig matches.

The Senegal international, who spent last season on-loan at Belgium Pro League club Club Brugge, was previously on the books of Italian champions Juventus while has also played professionally in France, Saudi Arabia, Hungary and China.

The Baggies claimed a much-needed win in their bid for Premier League survival this past weekend, coming from behind to beat Wolves 3-2 at Molineux Stadium.

Despite the result, West Brom remain five points from safety ahead of their league fixture at West Ham United on Tuesday evening.
