Morocco international Zouhair Feddal is the latest player to have caught the eye of English scouts during the Olympic Games football tournament.
The 23-year-old, who can leave Espanyol on a free transfer, had already attracted interest from England prior to his impressive showing at London 2012.
Several clubs watched the left-sided centre-half during the goalless draw against Spain at Old Trafford last week, with a man of the match performance doing his chances of earning a move little harm.
It is now expected a number of his suitors could show their hand this week following Morocco's exit from the tournament.
His English representative Rob Shield told Sky Sports: "A number of clubs were at the game to watch the young Spanish side, but most commented on the performance of Zou.
"He's a class act, tall, quick and a bargain buy for any club in the Championship or higher."
While Feddal is thought to be open to a move to England, clubs in both France and Spain have also shown tentative interest.
