Sam Allardyce wants Rennes star Clement Grenier to join West Brom survival fight as part of major transfer overhaul

SAM ALLARDYCE wants French midfield star Clement Grenier to join West Brom’s survival fight.

Allardyce is keen on his bosses financing a move for Grenier who can leave Rennes for nothing now rather than at the end of his contract in the summer.

Grenier scored for Rennes at the weekend and has a top CV. He is a smooth passer who would give Albion extra in that department.

Allardyce will need to persuade Grenier to come on a salary that fits the West Brom budget and the player will also need guarantees that his money is not cut if they are relegated.

Baggies officials are trying to sort out the figures as Allardyce has told them he wants the player as part of a major overhaul.

Allardyce thinks the current squad needs massive injections of extra quality but he will have to sell to buy in other positions.


West Brom completed their first signing of the January transfer window when Robert Snodgrass joined from West Ham on an 18-month contract.

And Allardyce has claimed his side are in need of new players more than anyone in the Premier League.

He said: “It’s a part of our process now to work tirelessly on outs and ins until the end of January. There’s no point me beating about the bush – everybody knows what we need to do.

“We need to move players in this window, everybody does. We need to bring players in this window, everybody does.

“But no one more so than we do. We need players in more than anyone else in the Premier League to give us a chance of moving out of the position we’re in.”

West Brom are mired in the relegation zone after picking up just one point since Allardyce replaced Slaven Bilic as manager.

The Baggies’ season went from bad to worse on Saturday when they were dumped out of the FA Cup on penalties by League One side Blackpool.
