Salomon Rondon is one of a number of players who have been linked with a move away from The Hawthorns if West Brom are relegated, the Daily Mirror reports. The Venezuela international has a £16.5m buy-out clause with a number of potential suitors the paper says, while team-mate Jonny Evans could also leave the club with Arsenal and Leicester interested.

Another potential Hawthorns departure is Jake Livermore, with the 28-year-old England international wanted by West Brom’s local rivals Aston Villa, the Daily Mail reports. The Baggies are looking odds-on for relegation while Villa appear to be heading in the other direction and the midfielder is holding out hope for a place on the plane to Russia.

Another striker who could be on the market this summer is Marcus Rashford, who is said to be disillusioned with a lack of first-team football at Manchester United, the Daily Mirror reports. The 20-year-old has found himself regularly starting on the bench and has been pushed down the pecking order following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January.

Rumours that Javier Hernandez may leave West Ham for another Premier League club have not died down since January – and the Mirror reports the Mexico striker is keen to make more starts and will be open to a summer move.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte may leave Stamford Bridge before the end of the season, the Mail reports. The Blues drew 1-1 with West Ham at the weekend placing more pressure on the Italian with the team down in fifth in the table, out of the Champions League but still in with a shout of the FA Cup.
