West Brom worried they could lose race for Liverpool target

West Brom are fearful that they could lose out on the signing of Ahmed Hegazi with fellow Premier League sides now taking an interest, according to reports.

The centre-back has been in outstanding form for the Baggies this campaign after joining from Al Ahly in the summer on a season-long loan deal.

Hegazi has appeared in 14 Premier League matches so far this campaign, contributing a goal and two man-of-the-match performances.

The Baggies have an option to buy the Egyptian at the end of the season with an agreed price of £4.4million set in the deal.

According to the Daily Mail, West Brom want to activate the clause in the contract with Leicester City showing an interest following his strong form.

Earlier this week ESPN FC also claimed that Liverpool had contacted Hegazi’s parent club over a potential move for the defender.

If Hegazi rejected West Brom’s deal then Al Ahly would be open to negotiate a price with any interested parties, meaning the Baggies could be helpless to stop the 26-year-old moving elsewhere.
