West Bromwich Albion are linked with Burkina Faso international Prejuce Nakoulma.

West Bromwich Albion are reportedly close to securing a deal for Burkina Faso international Prejuce Nakoulma.

The 27-year-old, who can play as a winger or striker, is out of contract with Polish club Gornik Zabrze, making him available on a free transfer.

The Baggies are hoping that Nakoulma will be granted a work permit on the virtue of featuring in all of Burkina Faso's international matches over the last two years, the Daily Mail reports.

Nakoulma played a key role for Burkina Faso during their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations campaign, and scored nine goals for his club last season.
