West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke is battling to keep hold of Claudio Yacob.

Atletico Madrid and Seville both want to lure the Argentina midfielder, 25, to La Liga - following his impressive first season at The Hawthorns, says the Daily Star Sunday.

Atletico coach and ex-Argentina ­midfielder Diego Simeone hopes Yacob's determination to force his way into Alex Sabella's World Cup squad will give him the edge in the £4million scramble.
