Albion want Viktor Gyokeres to show what he can do before deciding on his next step.

The Swedish striker is attracting interest ahead of the new season after impressing on loan at St Pauli last term.

Head coach Graham Potter believes he can offer a different option in attack.

He could give the 22 -year-old chance to shine in the Carabao Cup tie at home to Portsmouth on Thursday.

Potter told The Argus: “He has been away for the last week (with Sweden under-21s) so that has disrupted things a little bit but we have been impressed with him.

“He is probably a different type of forward to what we have – big, strong, runs in behind, can finish as well.

Has Albion's summer work been under-estimated?

“We want to take a real look at him and his qualities before we make any decisions on his next step.

“He is one we are really interested in.”

Swansea and St Pauli are both keen on taking Gyokeres on loan and are unlikely to be the only clubs eyeing him.

Asked whether he could play versus Pompey, Potter said: “It’s a possibility because he has done well when he has been with us and played and he has attributes that are really interesting.”
