West Brom missed out on a deal to land European attacker

West Brom reportedly looked into signing Hertha Berlin striker Davie Selke late in the last transfer transfer window.

The Baggies were said to be interested in landing the Bundesliga man on deadline day but a move to England didn’t happen for him in the end.

Selke, 27, stayed put and has made six appearances in all competitions so far this season, chipping in with a single goal.

According to a report by Bild, Steve Bruce’s side were keen on him along with FC Copenhagen, FC Basel and Rangers.

West Brom summer target

West Brom had a busy summer in the end as they prepared for this campaign, with their two main signings being John Swift and Jed Wallace from Reading and Millwall.

They have since added to their ranks by luring in Tom Rogic, Martin Kelly and Erik Pieters on free transfers this month, despite the window shutting.

Selke would have given the Midlands outfit more competition and depth in attack.

He has played for Hertha Berlin since 2017, having previously been on the books at Werder Bremen and RB Leipzig.

The former Germany youth international has made 118 appearances for them in all competitions to date and has scored 25 goals.

His contract expires at the end of this season and he is currently due to become a free agent in June 2023.
