West Brom and West Ham have set their sights on Bournemouth defender Steve Cook ahead of January, Football Insider can reveal.
Both clubs are expecting to be in the market for a new centre-back signing in the winter window and are keen to bring in someone proven in the Premier League.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Cook, 29, is a player on the radar of Premier League clubs including West Brom and West Ham.
His contract is due to expire at the Vitality Stadium next summer and he appears to be running it down.
Cook’s experience, pedigree and potential availability are all qualities that are attracting Baggies boss Slaven Bilic and his London Stadium counterpart David Moyes.
West Ham had made it a priority to strengthen at centre-back in the main summer window but the only recruit was Craig Dawson, 30, on a loan-to-buy deal from Watford.
