West Brom have joined Premier League heavyweights Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool in the race for Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire, according to ClubCall.
The 22-year-old defender has attracted interest from an array of top-flight clubs, after his impressive performances for Nigel Clough’s side this season.
Scouts from West Brom went to watch Maguire on Friday night in Sheffield United’s 2-1 victory over Part Vale, which left the club in eighth position in Sky Bet League One, with no chance of a play-off spot.
Maguire is worth in the region of £3 million and scouts from a number of top teams watched the defender in Sheffield United’s semi-final with Hull City at Wembley.
Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough is eager to keep hold of the highly-rated centre-back and has revealed he has started talks with the defender over a new contract.
Clough told the Yorkshire Post: “Negotiations have started.
“I think Harry is happy and likes playing for the club. He’s a home bird and we’d hope to get something settled as well.
“But there’s no desperate hurry. We’ll get that done over the course of the summer.
“Some people probably think he is a bit older than he is as he came into the team very early.
“But he’s still maturing as a player and person. I think there’s a lot more to come from him.”
