Wolves are reportedly interested in Spezia Calcio striker David Okereke.

The 21-year-old has seen his value grow over the course of last season, scoring 10 times and recording 12 assists for the Serie B side.

It's reported that West Ham and Newcastle are both keen too, although a move to another Italian club, Sassuolo, is also an option.

Meanwhile, the Hammers are reportedly set to table an offer for supposed Wolves target Morgan Sanson.

Nuno's side have been linked with the midfielder over the past few weeks, with the 24-year-old apparently likely to move on from Marseille this summer.

The Frenchman managed five goals from 37 appearances last season in Ligue 1.


West Brom

Barnsley have reportedly rejected a £1m bid from Serie A side Brescia for rumoured Albion target Liam Lindsay.

The Baggies are among a group of sides all linked with the defender, who helped guide the Tykes to promotion last season.

Albion are reportedly joined by Derby, Stoke, Brentford and Middlesbrough in their interest in the 23-year-old.


Crystal Palace are the latest side to be linked with a move for Albion striker Jay Rodriguez.

The forward is thought to be likely to depart this summer given Albion's failure to secure promotion via the play-offs.

Rumour has it that Burnley, Leicester and Bournemouth are all interested too.

Aston Villa

Villa have been linked with a move for Spanish youngster Andres Martin.

The winger, primarily a left-sided player, is currently on the books at Cordoba, showing flashes of quality - scoring seven goals in 32 appearances for the La Liga 2 side.

Interest is reportedly rife on the continent for the starlet, with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Sevilla, Rayo Vallecano and Eintracht Frankfurt all apparently keen.

Elsewhere, Liverpool youngster Ryan Kent is being urged to return to Rangers on-loan this summer.

The winger impressed at Ibrox last season, and Villa have been linked with a move for the promising youngster.

Former Rangers forward Kris Boyd believes his best move would be to move back to the Scottish side on-loan to continue his development.


Despite having signed former Salford forward Matt Green, Grimsby reportedly remain keen on Walsall striker Andy Cook this summer.

The striker was phenomenal last season for the Saddlers but couldn't prevent relegation to League Two.

A number of clubs are thought to be interested in the striker, although Walsall are hoping to see him stay put as they aim to bounce back this season.
