Skysports.com understands a number of Premier League sides are tracking Holland international Kevin Strootman.
Utrecht midfielder Strootman is regarded as one of the best young players in the Eredivisie after impressing for Utrecht since his January arrival from Sparta Rotterdam.
The 21-year-old has broken into the Holland side and is currently with the Oranje squad during their trip to South America after playing in games against Brazil and Uruguay.
FC Twente had a bid rejected for the classy midfielder last month and now a host of Premier League sides are keeping tabs on Strootman's situation.
Fulham have been credited with an interest in the past and with Martin Jol now at the helm at Craven Cottage they could step up their interest this summer.
Strootman's agent, Chiel Dekker, admits his client would be keen on a move to the Premier League if the opportunity arose.
"Kevin would be interested to play in the Premier League, like any player would," Dekker told skysports.com.
"I believe he has the qualities to play in England and be a success in the Premier League."
Strootman has admitted he would like the chance to play at the highest level possible.
He said: "Of course, like any other player, I would like to play at a very high level. But I will not force my departure from FC Utrecht."
