West Brom ready to make bid for Benfica's Krovinovic

West Brom are ready to discuss a permanent move with Benfica for attacking midfielder Filip Krovinovic who has spent this season as a key member of West Brom's run into the top two of England's second division and likely promotion to the Premiership next season once things get back to normal amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Krovinovic joined Benfica in the summer of 2017 from Rio Ave for €3.5M and appeared in 28 games with Benfica across all competitions before being loaned out this summer to West Brom. Krovinovic looks to have found a squad that he can play regularly and has appeared in 34 games this season for the Baggies across all competitions scoring twice and providing four helpers. The loan move between both clubs did not include an option to buy as part of the agreement but Benfica could be looking for €15M-€20M from West Brom to make the move permanent and with West Brom set to gain around €100M from television rights with a promotion an agreement should not be hard to come by for the the 24 year old Croatian.
