West Brom and Burnley are among several clubs showing interest in Slovakia midfielder Patrik Hrosovsky, who faces England on Monday.

The 24-year-old Viktoria Plzen midfielder started in Slovakia’s Euro 2016 Group B clash with Wales last week where he was watched by Albion boss Tony Pulis.

He was dropped for his country’s subsequent 2-1 win over Russia but remains in contention for a spot in the concluding group contest with England in Saint-Etienne, where he will again come under scrutiny from scouts.

Burnley also had him watched back in February and it would not be a surprise to see Sean Dyche’s men make a move after the tournament when Hrosovsky expects his future to be decided.

“My dream is to play in a major foreign league,” he said. “I’m regularly in contact with my agent, but we both agreed that it would be best to keep these things in the background until the end of the European Championships.”

Portuguese champions Benfica were linked with Hrosovsky just before Euro 2016 got underway while Bundesliga outfit Hamburg and Serie A strugglers Palermo are also understood to be interested.

Hull City have also been linked to the midfielder, who is under contract at Plzen until 2017.

Rapid Vienna failed to sign Hrosovsky after making a £1.5million bid earlier this year but it would probably take almost double that now to secure his signature.
