West Bromwich Albion have stepped up their chase to sign Cheick Tiote with another £3 million bid, according to Sky Sports News.
The FC Twente and Ivory Coast midfielder has been linked with a number of clubs, including Everton and West Ham.
The two clubs reportedly sent scouts to watch the Ivory Coast's friendly with Italy last week, and earlier reports suggested West Ham boss Avram Grant was ready to make a £4m bid for the midfielder.
This is the second £3m bid West Brom have made for the 24-year old, after having an earlier offer turned down in July.
