Skysports.com understands a number of Premier League clubs are tracking Shrewsbury starlet Connor Goldson ahead of the transfer window.
The teenage defender only made his senior bow for the Shrews in February, but he has made impressive progress since then.
He continues to develop at pace, looking more assured with each passing appearance.
The 18-year-old is now drawing admiring glances from afar, with potential such as his always likely to attract interest.
It is understood that a collection of top-flight clubs already have him on their radar, and they could be tempted to launch New Year raids.
Tottenham are believed to be leading the chase, with the capital giants having sent their scouts to watch Goldson in action on several occasions this season.
