West Brom are targeting “good players” but mainly focus on ones that they think they can sign, according to assistant boss Dave Kemp.
Kemp will be scouting for potential new recruits this weekend when the Baggies coaching staff use the Premier League fixture postponement as an opportunity to follow up on some of the reports they have received.
Â“We have scouts out there and opportunities like this weekend weÂ’re out following up these leads,Â” he told the Birmingham Mail.
Â“That happens all the time, the whole staff are out watching games all the time.”
Kemp, who often watches matches alongside head coach Tony Pulis, said it is all about bringing in players who were the Â“right fitÂ”.
Â“But itÂ’s not an open market. ItÂ’s easy to identify the best players in England, Italy, Spain or somewhere,” he added.
Â“But can you afford him, will he come to West Brom, can we pay the wages? ThereÂ’s all that business. Can you beat off the competition? ItÂ’s not quite as simple as people think.
Â“You have to identify the targets you think you have every chance of getting.
Â“WeÂ’re always looking at particular positions and always looking for good players as well. Any opportunity you can get a good player and wants to come to West Brom, youÂ’ve got to look at it.Â”
