Skysports.com understands West Brom have made a bid for Sheffield Wednesday ace Chris Brunt.
Wednesday face a fight to keep hold of Brunt after he turned down the club's offer of a new deal.
Brunt is entering the final year of his contract and West Brom are hoping to persuade Wednesday to do business for the Northern Ireland international.
The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the best young talents outside the top flight and his performances have caught the eye of Baggies boss Tony Mowbray.
Fulham tried to sign the left-sided midfielder earlier this summer, but Wednesday rejected the Premier League side's bid.
Mowbray is keen to bolster his squad after losing a number of top stars following their failure to win promotion last term and he is keen to bring Brunt to The Hawthorns.
Wednesday are reluctant to sell their prize asset, but West Brom are hopeful that their offer will be accepted by their Championship rivals.
