West Brom on Wednesday completed their second signing of the summer, buying James Chester from Hull City, and they now hope to make Lambert their third as soon as possible.
Should they complete a deal, Pulis believes the 33-year-old’s season of relative inactivity at Anfield could work in the Baggies’ favour.
“Rickie is available,” the Albion boss told the Birmingham Mail. “Liverpool have made that known. We’d be interested.
“It’s very important that we get players who will score goals.
“Rickie’s got a great goalscoring record.
“From what I can gather from people at Liverpool his fitness levels are very very good, and he is desperate to play football.
“He didn’t play last year so it’s like bringing a brand new car out of the garage if we did sign him.
“Just putting a bit of petrol in it and letting it run.”
