West Brom boss Tony Pulis has reportedly switched his attention to Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez as he steps up his search for Saido Berahino’s replacement.
Pulis has been keen to swell his striker ranks all month, and has been forced to have a rethink after Hull rebuffed his interest in Abel Hernandez.
That appears to have lead him to Rodriguez, though the Telegraph reports that hopes of a deal are a ‘long shot’ for the Baggies.

Rodriguez himself may find his game time limited due to the Saints agreeing a fee with Napoli for Manolo Gabbiadini, though is not showing any signs of pushing for a move.
