Premier League side West Bromwich Albion are targeting Brentford striker Scott Hogan as Tony Pulis looks to bolster his attacking options, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 24-year-old striker has been attracting increasing amounts of attention after continuing his fine goalscoring form from the tail end of last season.
This season, Scott Hogan has scored 13 times in 21 Sky Bet Championship games for Brentford, which sees him sit joint second with Glenn Murray in the Championship goalscoring charts.
Most notably, Scott Hogan’s 13 goals and a single assist has led to him contributing directly to just over 50% of Brentford’s goals this season.
The striker’s form and ability to lead the line as a single striker has not gone unnoticed.
West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis is a keen admirer of the former Rochdale striker and it appears that the Premier League side are readying a bid to prise Hogan away from the Championship side.
Although Dean Smith will be hoping to keep his prized asset at the club, Brentford may face a similar situation to the one they faced with Andre Gray.
It is looking increasingly likely that West Brom will place a bid in January for Scott Hogan, however, it is yet to be seen what that figure may be and if it will be suitable enough for Brentford to accept it.
