Feyenoord’s sporting director Frank Arnesen has revealed that they are close to completing a deal to sign Albion winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh.

The Rotterdam outfit saw Dutch international winger Steven Berghuis join Ajax, earlier this week and they identified the Iranian international as their prime target to replace him.

Speaking to Algemeen Dagblad, a daily newspaper in Rotterdam, Arnesen said: “We are on the right track, we still have something to do, but we are optimistic.’’
