Livermore has established himself as a key man for Albion but could be on his way out of the Hawthorns before the deadline.

Watford are looking at the deal as they look to find injury cover for Tom Cleverley, who is set to be out until the Autumn with a knock.

The midfielder played in Albion’s opening two fixtures against Bolton and Nottingham Forest, but could be on his way back to the Premier League with the Hornets.

Livermore joined Albion in January 2017 from Hull City for a fee reported to be over £10 million. Since then, he has become an established part of the Albion side, and even earned a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
