Burnley are set to make a fresh approach for long-term target Jay Rodriguez in the coming weeks.
A story on Sky Sports, relayed on Football League World, states that the Lancashire club will turn their attention back to the striker after failing with a £16 million bid last summer.
The 29-year-old has been strongly linked with a move back to the top flight since the Baggies were relegated a year ago, with those links intensifying after he hit 22 goals in the Championship last season.
What’s more, the former Southampton man could leave for as little as £5 million due to a clause in his contract, although that fee would later rise to £10 million due to add ons.
The possibility of signing Rodriguez in a cut-price deal looks to have tempted Burnley into having a second go at signing their former player.
Boss Sean Dyche is looking for an alternative to Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes, with the futures of Matej Vydra and Nahki Wells uncertain.
It seems as though Rodriguez, who has scored 33 goals in the Premier League, has been identified as a good fit by those at Turf Moor.
The Clarets aren’t the only side looking at Rodriguez, with Bournemouth, Leicester, Norwich and Sheffield United also said to be considering offers.
Four more possible West Brom summer departures
Burnley are also interested in centre back Craig Dawson if James Tarkowski leaves Turf Moor. The Baggies are said to be open to the 29-year-old leaving in order to generate funds.
Veteran midfielder Barry is out of contract at the end of this month and looks to be on his way out. It is thought Slaven Bilic will consider offering him an extension if he believes Barry can add something to the squad.
Morrison’s long West Brom career could come to an end this summer with his contract about to expire. Blackburn Rovers, Bristol City and Reading are possible destinations for the midfielder.
Several teams are rumoured to be in for Rondon, who impressed on loan at Newcastle last season. The Baggies will receive £16.5 million for the Venezuelan, which can go towards new additions to the squad.
