Robert Koren's agent has admitted a number of clubs have shown an interest in his services just 24 hours after he was released by West Brom.[LNB] Albion somewhat surprisingly decided not to take up the year's option on his contract on Monday, allowing him leave on a free transfer.[LNB]The news has alerted a number of clubs across Europe, with the player's representative Zoran Krneta expecting no shortage of offers for the Slovenian this summer.[LNB]The likes of Stoke, Newcastle, Wolves, Fulham and Swansea are all thought to be tracking the skilful midfielder.[LNB]"In my opinion we will get at least 10 offers for Robert," Krneta told Nogomania. "There are a lot of interested clubs and I can reveal, that in the first two hours after the news was published on West Bromwich Albion's website, I got calls from four clubs.[LNB]"We will talk about his future today, but I repeat, we won't have any problems with finding him a new club and also a good club. [LNB]"I'm sure about it as he is a really good and respected footballer. [LNB]"He is the one who will choose his club, but I guess he will look for a good contract and also team, where he will be able to play every week."[LNB]Krneta admitted Koren would ideally like to stay in England as he searches for a new club.[LNB]"He is in his best years and he would like to stay in England, where everybody knows him and where he made his name," concluded Krneta.
