Mel confirms Bifouma interest

And boss reveals trio could leave

PEPE Mel has confirmed Albion’s interest in signing Espanyol striker Thievy Bifouma before tonight’s transfer deadline.

The France Under-21 international can play wide or up front.

The Baggies boss was speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s home clash with Liverpool (ko 1.30pm).

And he also revealed a number of Championship clubs are chasing Graham Dorrans, while Goran Popov and Markus Rosenberg could also leave.

“Today is a long day,” said Mel.

“At the moment there is no news but I hope for at least one more player.

“There are a lot of names but one striker is possible here today.

“But getting Anichebe playing good matches, Saido Berahino is a good player in the three position and Vydra too.

“Therefore it is not dangerous if another striker does not come in.

“Thievy is a young player, who scores goals, and he is a possibility.”
