Norwich City have entered the race to sign West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez, with a number of Premier League clubs interested in a move for the striker.
Rodriguez was a key figure for the Baggies last season with 22 goals in the Championship, and according to the Burnley Express, interest in the striker is high.
Norwich look set to battle it out against the likes of Leicester City, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and the striker’s former club Burnley, while Sheffield United are also eyeing a move for the 29-year-old.
The report suggests the six Premier League sides have been alerted to a release clause in Rodriguez’s contract with the Baggies that is set at a total of £10million, should a deal be agreed prior to the middle of July.
Clubs would only have to pay initial fee of £5million, with a further £5million in add ons to meet the release clause, and Rodriguez is reportedly hoping his future will be resolved by the end of the month.
Four other strikers Norwich could sign

Wriedt enjoyed a fine campaign with FC Bayern Munich II, scoring 26 goals and creating nine assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.
Only Norwich striker Teemu Pukki and Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham scored more goals than Maupay in the Championship last season, with the Frenchman netting 25 times in the league with a further three more in the FA Cup.
Samatta was prolific in front of goal for Belgian side Genk last season, scoring 32 times and creating six assists in 51 appearances.
