West Brom have so far added only James McClean to their squad this summer, although talks were expected to begin with the agent of Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert today.
Albion are also considering a move for £10million-rated Dortmund striker Ramos, according to the Express & Star, while talks over QPR winger Matt Phillips could soon reach a breakthrough with Tony Pulis back in the country.
Like his manager, Fletcher is hopeful for new signings in time for the new Premier League season.
“You feel leggy at different parts of pre-season but it’s all gone well,” he said. “Nobody has picked up injuries and we have only got small numbers.
“I know the manager is desperate to get players in and we’re going to need those players because we’re relatively short of numbers.
“The biggest thing on the pre-season trips was not picking up injuries because we need everybody for the start of the season and we’re desperate for a few numbers to come in. I know the manager is as well so hopefully we can make that happen.”
