Rosenberg has experience of playing in leagues across Europe, having plied his trade in Sweden, Holland, Germany and Spain since beginning his career at Malmo in 2001.

The striker could become Steve Clarke's fourth summer signing, with the Baggies having already recruited Claudio Yacob, Yassine El Ghanassy and Ben Foster since the former Chelsea coach took over.

The Midlands club are looking to consolidate last season's 10th place finish by bolstering their attacking options, with leading forwards Shane Long and Peter Odemwingie both reportedly attracting interest.

Rosenberg has made 33 international appearances for Sweden, scoring on six occasions and lining-up alongside West Brom defender Jonas Olsson.

The 29-year-old started his country's first game of Euro 2012 against co-hosts Ukraine and appeared as a substitute in the following match against England as Erik Hamren's team failed to progress past the group stage.
