West Brom are set to face stiff competition in their pursuit of Angers defender Romain Thomas this summer.
Thomas joined Angers in 2013 and has made 92 appearances for the Ligue 1 side as he helped them to finish safely in ninth last term.
The 28-year-old’s exploits have led to interest from across Europe with the likes of Crystal Palace, Saint Etienne and Celta Vigo all keen.
However, West Brom are hoping to beat their rivals to his signature as Tony Pulis looks to further bolster his defensive options.
The defender still has two years left on his current contract and is expected to cost in the region of 4million Euros.
