West Brom using Amalfitano as bait to grab Ayew

The Baggies are hoping Morgan Amalfitano can convince his Ghanaian friend to snub Stoke and Everton to join them in January
West Brom are hoping Morgan Amalfitano can persuade Marseille striker Jordan Ayew to join him at Hawthorns in January as they seek to add more bite to their attack.

Ayew is also a transfer target of Everton and Stoke City but the Baggies are seriously talking to Amalfitano to convince the Ghanaian to snub the other two, according to the Express and Star tabloid.

The 22-year-old Ghanaian played with the Albion loanee at Stade Velodrome last season and as a close friend he could have an influence on him.

The forward is having a torrid season at OM starting most of the games from the bench and will be ready for a loan move. The Ghanaian star was on his way to West Brom alongside Amalfitano on loan during the summer, but the deal fell through.
