West Brom keeping tabs on Mackems ace

Stephane Sessegnon (Sunderland)

West Brom are in talks with Sunderland midfielder Stephane Sessegnon, reports the Mirror.

The former PSG attacker could join Steve Clarke’s side, who are yet to score in the Premier League this season.

Sessegnon could become West Brom’s 7th summer signing behind Nicolas Anelka, Scott Sinclair, Diego Lugano, Matej Vydra, Lee Camp and Morgan Amalfitano. Steve Clarke is looking to bolster his side after losing top scorer Romelu Lukaku, who finished his loan spell at the club and returned to Chelsea this summer.

The Benin international scored 7 times for Sunderland last season, as the Black Cats fell dangerously close to relegation at the end of last season, but survived at the expense of Wigan Athletic. But a move to a club who finished higher is now on the cards, as Paolo Di Canio revamps his Sunderland squad in his first transfer window at the club.

Sessegnon could join a flurry of Sunderland players who have departed the Stadium of Light this summer, including goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, defensive midfielder Alfred N’Diaye and winger James Mclean. The 29-year-old’s place in the team could already have been filled by Emanuele Giaccherini.

The Baggies will have to be quick to secure the deal before the transfer deadline, which is at 11pm.

Would Sessegnon be a good signing for West Brom?
