Arsenal and Liverpool are also reportedly in the hunt for Hearts defender Aaron Hickey, who will seemingly have the pick of a number of clubs when he decides to leave Tynecastle Park.
Manchester City have recently been linked with a £1.5m move for the full-back, while Southampton and Queens Park Rangers have also been credited with an interest.
According to The Sun, though, both Arsenal and Liverpool are amongst seven Premier League clubs interested in a deal for the 17-year-old, who spent time in the Celtic youth system ahead of a move to Hearts.
The report claims that the teenager was extensively scouted in Saturday's Scottish Premiership clash with Rangers, where he played the full 90 minutes.
Representatives from Newcastle United, Norwich City, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are also believed to have watched the youngster in the 1-1 draw at Tynecastle Park.
Hickey scored his first senior goal for Hearts against Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership last month.body check tags ::
