Wolves are the latest club to be linked with a move for ex-Shrewsbury Town loanee and West Brom striker Tyler Roberts.

A host of clubs in both the Premier League and Championship are monitoring the 18-year-old forward.

Swansea, Brighton and Sunderland have all been credited with an interest in the Wales under-21 international in the past.

And now Wolves and Premier League giants Arsenal are said to be the latest clubs considering a move.

Roberts is out of contract at Albion at the end of the season but it is believed talks over a new deal at the Hawthorns will start soon.

But the forward is likely to have a host of offers on the table following a string of impressive performances for Walsall.

Roberts, who has previously enjoyed temporary moves to Oxford and Shrewsbury, is on loan at the Banks’s Stadium until January.

He has netted four goals in 13 appearances for Jon Whitney's side.

And the youngster is refusing to rule out staying at the club until the end of the season with the forward said to be enjoying his football at the Saddlers.

Jon Whitney has also expressed a desire to extend his loan until the end of the campaign.

But that will depend on what Albion want to do in January – with the Baggies potentially wanting to cash in if Roberts' is not going to commit to a new deal.
