Contrepointe & Virgules – WEST BROMWICH, West Bromwich Albion have joined the race for KAA Gent defender Milad Mohammadi, according to Football Insider.
Leeds United are also interested in the 26-year-old left-back, and now their promoted club mate West Brom is studying the possibility of securing his services.
Leeds and West Brom have both won automatic promotion to the Championship and are preparing to live in the top flight of English football for the 2020-21 campaign. Although the Whites and Baggies have strong squads, they need to strengthen themselves to be competitive in the Premier League next season.
Mohammadi joined Gent on a free transfer last summer and did well for the Belgian club at left-back last season. Also capable of operating as a winger, the 26-year-old Iran international is reportedly costing £ 6.3million in transfer fees this summer. Leeds are a bigger club and have a bigger fan base than West Brom, and the left-back could be influenced by this in his decision on his future.
