AC Milan Plotting Bid For 19-Year-Old Wales Under-21 Striker

AC Milan are reportedly keeping tabs on a 19-year-old Welsh striker.

The fallen European giants heavily recruited in the summer, snapping up loads of talent including Andre Silva from Porto.

Though he's been linked with a sensational move to the Championship with Wolves reportedly in the hunt for his services through the aid of super-agent Jorge Mendes.

And it appears the Italian outfit are now in the hunt for another budding frontman.

Introducing West Brom's Tyler Roberts. The 19-year-old is courting plenty of interest from around the country, and beyond, as he enters the final months of his contract at The Hawthorns.

He's available in the summer for a compensation fee of £300,000 despite his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Reports in Italy via Daily Mail, claim AC Milan, Sampdoria and Torino are weighing up an offer. Closer to home, Leeds United have expressed an interest in snapping up the Wales under-21 striker.

Scottish outfit Rangers are also eyeing him up, with France's Marseille and Spain's Alaves monitoring his situation.

At the age of seven, Roberts joined West Brom's academy. And he made his Premier League debut at the tender age of 17 against Liverpool in the final game of the 2015/16 season.

But in order to gain first team experience, he's moved away from West Brom, enjoying loan spells at Oxford United then Shrewsbury Town, while most recently on loan at Walsall.

He weighed in with 5 goals from 17 league games before heading back.

Will Roberts leave the Midlands in the summer? Roberts to San Siro or Elland Road? Watch this space.
