Swansea City, West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers, Sunderland and Aston Villa are all exploring the possibility of signing Lierse S.K striker Wanderson.

There are five Premier League clubs all interested in signing Brazilian teenager Wanderson, a 19-year-old forward currently on the books at Lierse S.K, of the Belgian Pro League.

Swansea City, West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers, Sunderland and Aston Villa are all reportedly in the market for Wanderson.

A winger by trade, Wanderson has spent his developmental years in Belgium, initially playing for Beerschot AC at youth level before graduating into the seniors.

He secured a Bosman transfer to Lierse in 2013 and has since scored four league goals.

In the season to date, Wanderson - a right winger who is also adept at competing on the left - has returned one goal and one assist, from 719 minutes of action.

Wanderson has a transfermarkt.co.uk valuation of £616,000 but his contract at the Herman Vanderpoortenstadion expires next summer, so it is unclear for how much - or, indeed, how little - he could be purchased for in the January transfer window should a switch to the UK materialise.

The 19-year-old is the son of Wamberto, a striker who played for Ajax for a six year period between 1998 and 2004.
