West Bromwich Albion had a fairly good season in the last term in the Premier League and finished in the 10th position to show for their efforts. Now they are looking to build on that success in the next season as well and are looking forward to bring in players who can help them to end it in a position better than the one they achieved in the recently concluded campaign.

The Baggies have been depending throughout the last season on their brilliant home form, while their players were not so much effective in the games that were played away from the Hawthorns. Their current manager, Tony Pulis, has been worried about their away form and is reportedly eyeing a top class striker who can give their attack stability on both home and away turf.

As per sources, among a number of players who are being monitored by the Baggies to be brought into the Hawthorns, the name of the Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony has been right on top of the priority list for West Bromwich Albion. The Ivory Coast international has been playing for Stoke City on loan for the last season, and there is a high chance of the Citizens offloading him in the summer.

It has not been at all good for the ex-Swansea City striker in the last few seasons, especially since he has joined Manchester City. He has not been able to make regular first team appearances at the Etihad Stadium and has been kept on the sidelines for most of the season. Last season, he was left on loan to join the Potters but was far from his best form there as well.

However, that has not been able to hamper the reputation that the Ivory Coast marksman earned during his stay at Welsh club of Swansea City. He performed like a true champion and was one of the major factors for them to finish the season on a high note in the Premier League as well as the League Cup, earning them the prestigious opportunity to compete in the UEFA Europa League for the 2013/14 season.

Reportedly, the striker has been eyed by Premier League clubs Everton, who are in dire need of a striker as they might lose their star striker Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea in the summer. West Ham United is also en route to giving the Baggies some serious competition in their pursuit of the Ivory Coast international. Teams from Europe like Lyon and Galatasaray are also reported to have shown interest in him.
