    Liverpool have reportedly accepted a £3m bid from West Bromwich Albion for striker Rickie Lambert.


    Lambert5England international Lambert has been told he is able to move on from Anfield a year after arriving in a £4m deal from Southampton.

    The thirty-three year old realised a dream by completing the surprise switch to his boyhood club, but after just two Premier League goals last season he has been deemed surplus to requirements.

    Christian Benteke, Divock Origi and Danny Ings have all arrived at the club this Summer and that has left Lambert a long way down the pecking order.

    Baggies boss Tony Pulis is keen to take the striker to the Hawthorns to bolster his attacking options.


    “I think it is very important we get players who score goals and Rickie has a great goalscoring record.” he said.

    “From what I can gather from people at Liverpool, his fitness levels are very good and he is desperate to play football.

    “He didn’t play last year so it would be like bringing a brand new car out of the garage if you did sign him, just putting a bit of petrol in him and letting him run.” he finished.

    Lambert has been linked with moves to Leicester City, Crystal Palace, Tottenham Hotspur, Norwich City, Middlesbrough and Bournemouth.

    The geography of West Brom is said to be a factor as it will mean he can remain living on Merseyside.

    He is currently undergoing a medical with the Premier League side and a deal will soon be announced.
