Back in January, two different Spanish outlets linked West Bromwich to the Espanyol forward Felipe Caicedo. Cadena Ser and AS, strangely crediting other, both claimed a deal between the Baggies and the La Liga side would be possible.
Caicedo ended up staying at Espanyol, but his exit is now even more likely, giving West Brom a second chance should they want it. Once again, Espanyol are looking to free themselves from Caicedo’s wages, and are looking for a destination.
The problem is he isn’t attracting many interested sides. As reported by Sport, there aren’t any Spanish clubs wanting him, and although clubs from Russia and Turkey have shown the interest, Caicedo doesn’t want to play there.
That’s why Espanyol are even considering loaning the player out, as long as his next club pays the biggest part of his wages.
Given the La Liga side’s desperation to get rid of the player, this is surely a good opportunity for West Brom to go after him again if there remains any interest.
His season may not be impressive, but his good spells at Basel, Lokomotiv and Levante have shown he can be very useful.
Tony Pulis undoubtedly has more exciting striker targets, but if those fail and Caicedo remains where he is at the end of the season, there’s a possibility the unlikely could be considered.
