AC Milan, Sampdoria and Torino track West Brom striker Tyler Roberts

Serie A trio AC Milan, Sampdoria and Torino are interested in West Bromwich Albion striker Tyler Roberts, sources close to the player have told ESPN FC.

Roberts' future at West Brom has been the subject of speculation during this month's transfer window, with the highly rated forward out of contract in the summer. The 19-year-old spent the first half of the season out on loan at Walsall and he impressed at the League One club, scoring five goals in 19 games.

Roberts, who came up through the ranks at West Brom, made his Premier League debut for the club when he was 17, coming on as a substitute in a 1-1 draw against Liverpool on the final day of the 2015/16 campaign.

West Brom are keen to tie down Roberts to a new deal at the Hawthorns, but have yet to agree terms on a new contract.

With Roberts' current deal expiring in the summer he is able to talk to foreign clubs from January and even sign a pre-contract agreement. There had been reports of Leeds United and Rangers pursuing a deal for the striker, but they now face fierce competition from Italy for the Wales Under-21 international.
