Lazio and Sevilla will reportedly step up their interest in West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long if the striker does not sign a new contract at The Hawthorns this summer.

West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long's contract situation has reportedly attracted interest from clubs across Europe including Lazio and Sevilla.

Long will enter the final year of his current deal at The Hawthorns this summer and has been scouted by Sevilla throughout this season, according to The Mirror.

The Republic of Ireland international is also thought to be a target for Lazio, who are short of long-term cover for veteran striker Miroslav Klose.

The 26-year-old is highly regarded by Albion and manager Steve Clarke is expected to open negotiations over a new contract before the end of the season.

Long joined West Brom for £6.5m in 2011 and has scored nine goals in all competitions this season.
