According to French outlet L’Equipe (via SportWitness), both Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion have enquired about the availability of Angres’ striker, Karl Toko Ekambi.
The 25-year-old has been in impressive form for the French side this season having scored a commendable total of nine goals in 18 games, while also providing a decent sum of three assists.
It is being reported that the Cameroonian striker is interested in a move to the Premier League, however that interest is dependent on the forward’s contractual demands. Apparently, the former Sochaux player is insisting on receiving a wage around £50,000-a-week.
Angres’ number seven is regarded highly at his club, in part to his wealth of attacking qualities. Ekambi has demonstrated his refined finishing ability throughout his career, and he also exhibits the capacity to shoot from distance.
He is also renowned for his impressive passing ability, in addition to his capability to hold up play if necessary.
While areas of his game do require greater refinement, at his age, it is plausible to suggest that the world has yet to see the best of his abilities.
While considering that Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their previous seven league games and that they currently occupy 14th place in the Premier League table, it isn’t implausible to argue that West Brom are the ones most in need of attacking reinforcement.
West Brom are currently languishing in 19th position, and aside from bottom club Swansea City, no team has scored fewer goals than the Baggies in England’s top flight this term. Truthfully, a total of 13 goals in 18 league games is a pitiful record, and it is evident that West Brom need to address their attacking woes.
Perhaps Ekambi is the solution.
