West Brom is interested in closing a fixed deal for midfielder Filip Krovinovic if they win promotion to the Premier League.
The Croatian international made an impression during his season loan from Benfica and helped West Brom finish second in the championship – a point adrift from Leeds leaders – before the corona virus crisis meant that football was suspended earlier this month.
Club transfer plans are currently suspended due to COVID-19 and no decision is currently possible on a definitive return to action due to the spread of the disease.

But as the season resumes and Albion can get promoted, boss Slaven Bilic has indicated he wants to keep Krovinovic, 24, with The Hawthorns.
Benfica’s original asking price for Krovinovic would be around £ 11 million, which Albion hoped to negotiate.
The player has played 31 games in the championship so far this season and has been an integral part of West Brom’s success this season.
He scored twice in the league and scored four more assists.
