A host of Premier League clubs are battling to sign Portsmouth youngster Florent Cuvelier, skysports.com understands.
The 17-year-old midfielder has one-year left on his current deal at Fratton Park - but he has made it clear he wants to leave.
The Belgian Under 19 international was withdrawn from Portsmouth training earlier in the year as his father became disillusioned with what was happening at the Premier League club.
Relegation has since followed, and although the player has resolved his differences with the club - he is now set for a swift return to the top-flight.
It is understood the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham, Fulham and Stoke are all ready to make him an offer.
