Monaco striker Mohamed Kallon would be interested in a move to West Brom.Monaco striker Mohamed Kallon would be interested in a move to West Bromwich Albion.
The Baggies are rumoured to be one of three clubs hoping to sign the Sierra Leone ace, with Charlton Athletic and Genoa also suitors.
Kallon has spent just one season with Monaco and scored 11 goals in Ligue 1 following his arrival from Internazionale.
But he is unsettled at Stade Louis II and could head out of the Principality during the summer.
The 25-year-old has not received an approach from West Brom but his representatives acknowledged he would be tempted by a switch to The Hawthorns for the chance to work with Bryan Robson.
"I am aware West Bromwich Albion are looking for a striker and Mohamed Kallon has made it well known he would like to move to England," said Gianluca Tizi, spokesman for the forward's agent Claudio Vigorelli.
"I know Bryan Robson well and I know that my player thinks very highly of him as a trainer.
"There has been an interest from other clubs, including Birmingham some time ago, but as yet I have heard nothing concrete from West Bromwich.
"But if they were to discuss matters with Monaco I would personally recommend to the player that he accept a move.
"The player is not happy at the moment and wants to seek a new challenge. He has played in Italy and in the French League and a move to The Premiership is a probability."
