A clutch of European clubs are chasing the 31-year-old striker following his impressive season at Middlesbrough.

Although his ten goals were unable to help Boro survive the drop, the veteran has returned from his Riverside loan spell back to Valencia with his reputation enhanced.

West Brom are believed to be considering making a swoop for the forward as Tony Pulis attempts to bolster his squad this summer.

The Manchester City title-winner is also wanted by Turkish giants Galatasaray and Greek side AEK Athens as La Liga outfit Valencia attempt to get him off their wage bill.

However, according to the hitman’s agent Juanma Lopez, he has no intention of going to Greece.
