West Brom in talks for Basel midfielder Marcelo Diaz

West Bromwich Albion are swooping for FC Basel midfielder Marcelo Diaz.

The Chile World Cup midfielder, 28, is set to sign for the Baggies before Monday's deadline.

Hamburg agreed a fee of around £4million with his club Basel, but Diaz, who played in all four of Chile's games in Brazil last summer, is said to prefer a move to England's top flight, says the Mirror.

West Brom will continue talks today with FCB about a deal.
