Sky Sports understands that several English clubs have been sending over their top scouts to assess the progress of Irish teenager Christopher Forrester, including several from the Premier League.

The 19-year-old St Patrick's Athletic winger has become an internet sensation after scoring a catalogue of spectacular goals, including two against Shamrock Rovers in April.

Forrester only joined St Patrick's in January from rivals Bohemians, where he won Young Player of the Year last season.

With interest building in the highly-rated youngster, the Irish club fear they may struggle to hold onto their prized asset.
