West Brom ready to re-sign Benfica midfielder Filip Krovinovic

West Brom are ready to re-sign Benfica midfielder Filip Krovinovic.

The 25-year-old Croatian midfielder impressed during last season's loan stint to help the Baggies return to the Premier League as Championship runners-up.

The Daily Mail says Albion had been struggling to put a deal together given their tight budget restrictions and last week hopes had been fading they would be able to strike an agreement with Benfica.

But now it appears the Premier League side are in pole position to bring the playmaker back to The Hawthorns with Krovinovic likely to sign a new contact in Portugal before returning to the West Midlands.

Getafe and Bologna have been interested in Krovinovic but Albion, having struggled to put concrete offers down, have now made a significant breakthrough after weeks of talks.
