Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are among seven clubs keeping tabs on Sheffield United goalscoring hero Daniel Jebbison.
Jebbison, 17, hit the headlines on Sunday after scoring the winner on his full debut as the Blades overcame Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park.
The teenager is attracting the attention of some of Europe’s most powerful clubs and Sheffield United are keen to tie him down to a longer deal, although that may be easier said than done after Sunday’s heroics.
According to 90min, Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and fellow German outfit Borussia Dortmund, a club renowned for poaching top English talent, are also circling around the youngster.
The Blades hope to keep hold of the 6ft 3in forward as they bid to make an immediate return to the Premier League next season, but that could depend on who takes over in the Bramall Lane hotseat.
Interim boss Paul Heckingbottom was glowing in his praise of Jebbison after the match, saying: “The reason why we picked Daniel is that we know he knows where the goal is.
“He knows he has to get in between those goal posts and, if he does that, then the rewards will come.
“And that’s what he does – he shows that energy and that desire to get into the right positions, which for me is great to see.
“He brings an energy, hard work and a willingness to run behind and make it difficult for centre-forwards, which is all good and really encouraging.
“But the most impressive thing about Daniel, and indeed that performance he’s just put in, is the fact that he finished the chance when it came along;. Because, for people in his position, there is nothing more important that doing that.”
Jebbison was born in Canada but is already an England youth international, making his debut for the Three Lions with the U18s against Wales earlier this year.

He could be given more opportunities over the next fortnight as the Blades look to end the season with a flourish against Newcastle and Burley.
For now, the debut star is still enjoying his first Premier League goal, saying after the match: “I’m just thankful I’ve been given the opportunity by the club. I took the chance, I gave it all so I’m very thankful for the opportunity that the club has given me.
“It’s crazy, I can’t really describe the feeling when I scored but it’s amazing, yeah.
“When I was told [I was starting] I couldn’t stop smiling, I couldn’t sleep, so I’m just glad I made the best of it today.”
