According to Turkish outlet Sabah, Slaven Bilic is trying to lure Shinji Kagawa to West Brom.
West Brom may well be busy in the transfer window this summer as they try to replace the loans they brought in over the course of 2018/19.
Salomon Rondon looks as though he’ll depart the club whilst they’ll also have to bring in a replacement for Dwight Gayle.
There are a number of areas that Bilic will need to improve ahead of a summer rebuild and the attacking midfield role is clearly an area they’re targeting.
West Brom are still long-term admirers of Bradley Dack but now the 97-cap Kagawa is attracting their attention.
Sabah claim that Albion’s new boss is trying to convince him to make the switch from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

It’s safe to say that if Bilic can bring a player with the calibre that Kagawa possesses to Albion, he’ll be considered an instant hit.
This is a player who has achieved some remarkable things in his career and if they convince him to drop down to the Championship after a loan spell with Besiktas, it would be an incredible piece of business.
Why? Because the Japanese star is a winner. He won the Premier League title with Manchester United in 2013 and he’s also a two-time Bundesliga champion with Dortmund.
Although failing to set the world alight in England before, his performances in Germany speaks for itself and his success at the highest level cannot be underestimated.

Considering his creative nous, it would be an incredible coup if Bilic can lure him to the Baggies and he’d almost certainly end West Brom’s troubles when it comes to creativity.
His quality at Championship level would be supreme judging by what he’s accomplished previously in his career and he’d certainly boost their chances of promotion.
On that final factor alone, it could instantly put their new manager in the good books of the Hawthorns faithful.
