The 32-year old Uruguay captain is keen to depart Paris Saint-Germain this summer and has reportedly opened talks with the Baggies about the possibility of heading to England’s West Midlands.
"What else can I say? There is nothing to say yet. I will return to PSG and do the pre-season with the intention of leaving," he told Urugol earlier this month.
"I haven't decided where yet. I will return to France, but I will be trying to leave.”
