West Brom are counting on an auction sparking for Matheus Pereira.

The Express & Star says despite Albion's struggles last year, Pereira shone in the top flight – with the Brazilian scoring 11 goals and registering six assists.

It is understood the 25-year-old wants to leave the club this summer and ideally wants to return to the Premier League.

Albion, meanwhile, are happy to let Pereira move on if they receive a suitable offer – with the club believed to want in the region of £30million for the former Sporting Lisbon star.

Pereira has been linked with a move to Leeds, Leicester, Aston Villa and Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in recent weeks.

But reports have now emerged from his native Brazil claiming West Ham and Eintracht Frankfurt have now entered the race for his signature.
