West Bromwich Albion open talks for Tottenham Hotspur target Troy Deeney

According to the Birmingham Mail, Premier League newcomers have joined the race for Tottenham Hotspur target Troy Deeney.

The striker had emerged as a target for the Baggies last week. Watford are willing to let go of their striker after their relegation to the Championship last season.

Spurs were also keen on the player but have now fallen behind West Brom. The Baggies are already in talks with both sides now locked in negotiations.

According to the report, West Brom Sporting and Technical director Luke Dowling is the man in charge of bringing Deeney to the Hawthorns. He shares a close relationship with the decision-makers at Vicarage Road, having worked for them earlier. This hands West Brom the advantage over us.

Deeney is, in fact, a Birmingham-born player who came through the youth ranks at Walsall, eventually joining Watford in 2010. As of yet, he has featured 398 times for the Hornets, scoring 139 goals and assisting 59.

Spurs are keen to bring in the 32-year-old as a backup to star striker Harry Kane. The English skipper is a world-class striker. However, Spurs lack a dependable backup who can step in for him when needed.

With Troy Parrott also joining Millwall on loan, Jose Mourinho will be left with no specialist striker to call on if Kane is injured. In fact, it was a scenario that played out last season, much to our detriment.

A dogged customer with Premier League experience, Deeney would be an astute signing. However, it looks like it is not to be, with the striker closing in on a move to the Hawthorns.

Tottenham begin their Premier League campaign against Everton on September 12. It kicks off a busy schedule of games, with us facing Lokomotiv Plovdiv on the 17th before travelling to Southampton three days later.

Whether the club bring in a backup for Kane by then remains to be seen.
