West Bromwich Albion saw a January attempt to sign striker Cyle Larin from Besiktas rejected by Turkish club.

The Baggies were keen to add a striker to their squad throughout the winter transfer window, with Sam Allardyce identifying that area of his squad as a weak one.

They were subsequently linked with several strikers across the month before finally securing a deal for Fenerbahce striker Mbaye Diagne towards the end of the window.

However, according to Fanatik, there was another striker that West Brom tried to sign from Turkey, Cyle Larin.

They explain that the Baggies offered to loan the Canadian striker, who has 12 goals in the Süper Lig this season, until the end of the season for a €500,000 fee.

This included a potential €10m via an option to make the move a permanent one at the end of the season, but Besiktas elected to reject the move, deeming they needed the player as they continue to compete for the title.

Thus, West Brom seemingly turned their attention to Diagne instead, securing a loan deal for the Fenerbahce striker.

That deal also includes an option for the move to become permanent in the summer, which is looking increasingly likely if the 29-year-old can continue his strong start to life at the Hawthorns.
