West Brom in talks to sign Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer in £15million deal as a potential replacement for Manchester City target Jonny Evans

WEST BROM are in talks with Tottenham over a £15million move for Kevin Wimmer, according to reports.

The Austrian could arrive at The Hawthorns as a potential replacement for Jonny Evans, who has emerged as a shock target for Manchester City.

According to the Telegraph, Tony Pulis has made a move for the defender and is hoping to complete the signing in a matter of days.

Wimmer has been made available by Spurs as Mauricio Pochettino eyes reinforcements after failing to add to his squad so far this summer.

Talks between the two Premier League clubs are now at an advanced stage.

If things go to plan, the 24-year-old could be available for selection for Pulis ahead of their EFL Cup clash against Accrington Stanley on Tuesday evening.

Stoke and Crystal Palace were also linked with a move for Wimmer but it appears as though the Baggies are in pole position to clinch his signature.

It is believed Pulis has ditched plans to sign Middlesbrough star Ben Gibson after previously planning a bid.

Wimmer would become West Brom’s fourth summer signing – joining new arrivals Jay Rodriguez, Ahmed Hegazi, Zhang Yu’Ning, Ben Pierce and Gareth Barry.

Pulis has also told winger Nacer Chadli he can leave the Hawthorns, despite impressing since arriving from Spurs last summer.
