West Brom star being focused by Bundesliga giants
Championship team West Bromwich Albion appear to have a superstar striker in their midst, but has yet to tie him to his first professional contract.
Reyes Cleary is only 17 years old but has already been compared to Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku for his physicality and eye for goals.
The Daily Mail notes that he has already scored six goals in four U18 Premier League games this season and that has caught the attention of one of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Borussia Dortmund sent scouts to watch the player, and Bundesliga rivals Schalke and Hoffenheim also seem interested.

Not only can you make more money elsewhere, but the appeal of playing for a top team is obvious.
