West Brom and Crystal Palace both ask to sign Ligue 1 star, offers on way, €200k a month tempting

On Friday, L’Equipe have a big feature on the January transfer window, and how each Ligue 1 club will be approaching it.


With a lot of repeat business between the Premier League and France’s top division, it was no surprise to see several English clubs mentioned… including West Brom and Crystal Palace.

When L’Equipe came around to Angers, Karl Toko Ekambi stood out for them as a target for other clubs in the January window. Toko Ekambi is the club’s top scorer this season, finding the back of the net 9 times and adding 2 assists.

That form has brought him to the attention of others, with L’Equipe saying both West Brom and Crystal Palace have ‘asked’ about a January deal. Offers are said to be on the way, without it being stated as fact those offers will be from West Brom and Crystal Palace.

The French newspaper say Angers will only sell Toko Ekambi if he asks to leave, and it’s insinuated a salary offer of around €200k per month would be tempting.
