According to The Times, Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking at bringing West Brom teenager Tyler Roberts to the club in January.

Wolves spent big on players in the summer, including a club record fee for midfielder Rúben Neves. It seems that they have now turned their attention to the 18-year-old who is currently on loan at League One outfit Walsall.

Roberts has scored four league goals for The Saddlers this season and the Welshman is enjoying his best year in football to date having scoring nine goals in 2017 so far, including one for the Wales U21 national team.

Operating either up front or on the wing, Roberts is proving to be one for the future; Walsall are currently 15th position in League One and without Roberts’ goals, they would be sitting in the relegation zone.

Roberts is out of contract at West Brom in the summer and The Times report that he has turned down the offer of a five-year deal so he can leave for free when his deal expires.

Arsenal, Swansea and Bournemouth are also said to be looking at Roberts, so he certainly is not short for options if he does leave Albion.
