Crystal Palace and West Brom showing interest in Cameroon striker Karl Toko Ekambi
Cameroon international Karl Toko Ekambi will be the subject of interest from both West Brom and Crystal Palace in the January transfer window, according to L’Equipe.
The striker has netted nine goals in 18 appearances in Ligue 1 for Angers this term and could be an attractive prospect for both sides going into the new year as they look to ease their relegation fears.
Karl Toko Ekambi, who previously played for Sochaux in the French top flight, has made 17 appearances for his country, scoring twice.
Toko Ekambi has already outstripped last season’s tally of seven and is enjoying the best season of his career, even if his team-mates are not performing to anywhere near the same level.
A tally and rangy striker who can also play on the left wing, the 25-year-old’s athleticism means he fits the bill for a West Brom or Palace side that seem well suited to playing on the counter attack.
Though Angers will surely do everything in their power to avoid their talisman’s departure. Their survival could depend on whether he stays or goes.
