Premier League Quartet Eyeing Marko Pantelic

According to a report in the British tabloid the Daily Mail, Premier League clubs Everton, Middlesbrough, West Brom and Wigan are weighing up bids for Marko Pantelic.

The 30-year-old striker currently plies his trade for German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin and has four league goals to his name from 14 appearances this campaign.

The Serbian international has been one of the most consistent goal scorers in Germany since signing from Red Star Belgrade in 2005, with a record of 42 goals in 101 games.

West Brom could well be in the market for a new forward after it was revealed that Ishmael Miller suffered a medial knee ligament injury against Portsmouth on Sunday which could sidelined him for six weeks.

Everton are also in need of attacking reinforcements with the likes of Yakubu, James Vaughan and Louis Saha all facing spells on the treatment table.

Wigan are chasing a replacement should they decide to cash in on Emile Heskey in January, while Middlesbrough might want to add some firepower up front after finding the back of the net only 16 times from 16 games.

Although Hertha Berlin are keen to keep hold of Pantelic, they could listen to offers starting at around €1.75 million as his contract is set to expire in the summer.
