West Bromwich Albion have made an official contact with Orlando City for striker Daryl Dike, 90min can confirm.
The 21-year-old has had a rapid rise, and has gone from college football to playing for the US men’s national team within a couple of years.
Dike enjoyed a productive loan spell in the Championship with Barnsley earlier this year, but Orlando City seemed reluctant to let him leave on a permanent basis. The Lions even rejected a bid from one of the Premier League’s so-called “big six”.
But on Wednesday, 90min revealed that Orlando had now come up with the idea of letting Dike leave, even offering the USMNT striker up to a number of Premier League clubs. They would also be open to lending Dike again with a permanent alternative.
West Brom, led by former Barnsley boss Valerian Ismael, have been tracking Dike for some time, and 90min can confirm that talks are underway to loan him out in January with a view to a permanent move.

Ismael has previously expressed confidence in getting some business across the border, and being reunited with Dike – who scored nine goals in 19 championship games under French-German – seems to be at the top of the agenda.
But a move to The Hawthorns is not yet a matter of course, with Premier League clubs still sitting at the table considering their own bids.
Leeds United are currently the most interested in the top clubs – unsurprisingly as they are co-owned by the San Francisco 49ers and have American Paraag Marathe installed as their vice president.
