Son of Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dejphon Chansiri starts following West Brom's Kenneth Zohore on Instagram

The West Bromwich Albion striker Kenneth Zohore is the latest footballer Att Chansiri has followed on Instagram.

Elias Kachunga, Chey Dunkley, Josh Windass, Connor Wickham, Alessio da Cruz and Massimo Luongo each joined Sheffield Wednesday after being followed by Chansiri, whose father is the Owls chairman, Dejphon.

The Wednesday manager, Garry Monk, has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his side’s options at centre-forward.

And there would be plenty of logic behind targeting Zohore, for whom West Brom are reported to have paid around £8 million in 2019.

Wednesday are down to just one out-and-out striker in Jordan Rhodes, and have struggled without the physical presence of Steven Fletcher, who left the club at the end of June and is now a Stoke City player.

As well as that, though, the six-foot-three-inch Dane would bring pace and proven Championship credentials, having scored or assisted 36 goals in 96 games at that level for West Brom and Cardiff City.

West Brom are rumoured to be in the market for a centre-forward themselves, with Troy Deeney, Andre Gray and Karlan Grant all strongly linked with moves to The Hawthorns.

And that could mean Zohore is now available.

But Wednesday, who may struggle to afford a permanent deal, could face competition from a familiar face in Neil Warnock if they are indeed interested in signing the 26-year-old.

The Northern Echo reported earlier this month that Warnock has made an attempt to sign Zohore, whom he managed at Cardiff, on loan.
