Jay Rodriguez is a target for many Premier League clubs this upcoming summer transfer window.
He had an impressive spell with Championship club West Bromwich Albion this season after scoring 22 goals for the club. However, he was unable to secure promotion with West Brom, who are now considering selling the forward.
Reports in the Burnley Express say that a clause in Rodriguez’s contract means clubs only have to initially sign him for £5 million, with £5 million add-ons providing a deal is done by the middle of July. Therefore many teams are interested in him.
Crystal Palace are the latest club to express their interest in him. After not having the most promising journey throughout their 2018/19 campaign, a new forward, who has been very successful recently, could be extremely beneficial for the Premier League side.
Due to the inexpensive asking price, Crystal Palace – and other Premier League teams – are confident in their decision to go after him.
Who are the other teams that could move for Jay Rodriguez?
Rodriguez’s ex-club Burnley are reportedly interested in the forward after having an impact there under boss Eddie Howe and again impressing this season at West Brom.
Reports claim that Leicester City have their eye on the 29-year-old and think he’ll help the club in future seasons.
Newly-promoted Norwich are building their team up for their season in the Premier League, and after Rodriguez failed to gain promotion with West Brom, perhaps he could fancy a shot with the Canaries.
Bournemouth are reportedly interested in Rodriguez after hearing about the bargain price and will be in competition with the other Premier League clubs.
