Prem trio target Thievy return

Sky Sports understands several Premier League clubs are tracking former West Brom loanee Thievy Bifouma.

Espanyol forward Thievy spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom and helped the club secure their Premier League status.

The 22-year-old scored two goals in just six appearances in the Premier League with three of those appearances coming off the bench.

Despite his short spell in England the Frenchman impressed several other clubs and his versatility in that he can play out wide or up front makes him an attractive proposition.

Three Premier League clubs are believed to be weighing up moves to offer Thievy a second crack in England, while a number of Spanish sides are also keeping tabs on his situation.
