West Bromwich Albion are keeping tabs on former Everton striker Lacina Traore with a view to possibly signing him next summer.
The 26-year-old Ivory Coast international is currently on loan at CSKA Moscow from Monaco and was reportedly watched by a Baggies scout last Wednesday.
The 6ft 8in giant laid on CSKA’s equaliser as the Russians came from two goals down to claim a Champions League point in their opening group match at Bayer Leverkusen.
Traore endured a dismal loan spell at Everton in 2014, but has begun the season well in the Russian capital.
West Brom also sent a scout to watch Braga’s Europa League tie against Gent on Thursday, according to the official list published by the Belgian club.
