BIRMINGHAM, England -- West Bromwich Albion says it has signed former Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal striker Nicolas Anelka to a one-year contract as it prepares for the next Premier League season.

The 34-year-old former French international was a free agent after leaving Juventus at the end of last season, following a short-term contract with the Italian club.

West Brom coach Steve Clarke says Thursday "We are missing a bit of firepower from last year, we're trying to put that right. And to kick off with the signing of Nicolas at the start of the summer is a great boost for everyone at the club."

The two men worked together briefly in 2008 when Clarke was assistant coach at Chelsea.

Anelka's former clubs also include Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
