Asked about a potential move for the 27-year-old, Bilic replied: “He is a good player.
“He is an option because he plays in the position where, even before the injuries, we tried to sign a player – he is a centre-forward.”
But he added: “I don’t negotiate. I’m just the manager. I just say to the chairmen and (chief scout) Tony Henry, we talk and then they do it.”
