Garcia will look to sign Spanish talent
Oscar Garcia plans to bring in Spanish talent – when the time is right.
Albion’s head coach has yet to exploit his vast array of contacts at Barcelona, where he was a player and coach.
But he is confident of securing talent from his homeland when he has assessed the squad.
Oscar said: “Hopefully it happens but it isn’t easy because we have a budget and it is not so easy to bring in these players within that.
“Also, in the transfer window I had only just got here and needed to settle in and really evaluate what I had in the squad.
“But there are players who are open to the idea of coming here and I would hope that, during the three years I am here, we can bring in young players from Barcelona or other Spanish teams.”
Albion expect to bring in a loan striker early in the window, which opens tomorrow. The timing of the 93-day deal will depend on how Oscar, whose side go to Reading on Sunday, wants to use the player.
Oscar believes the addition will be good news for top scorer Leo Ulloa.
He added: “We need to make sure Leo maintains this level of performance until the end of the season.
“Leo is a player who, when he is happy in training and playing like he is now, he gives us a lot.”
