Sky Sports understands a host of Premier League clubs are monitoring Thomas Ince's situation at Blackpool.
The 20-year-old, son of former England star Paul, joined Blackpool in the summer after coming through the youth system at Liverpool.
After finding his feet in the opening weeks of the season, Ince has now made a first-team place his own at Bloomfield Road and has flourished under Ian Holloway's stewardship.
But his recent form has now seen a flood of scouts take particular attention to the young winger, who is happy playing on either flank.
He has also shown an eye for goal, and grabbed a brace in the weekend win over Bristol City as he produced a superb all-round display at Ashton Gate.
Ince's current deal is due to expire next year, and Blackpool's resolve could be tested come the end of the season.
The likes of Everton, Fulham, Wigan and Bolton are all thought to be amongst those keeping tabs on Ince, whilst Blackpool's Championship rivals Southampton and Middlesbrough are also believed to monitoring him.
