Arsenal and Liverpool have joined the hunt for Luc Castaigones - rated as one of the finest young prospects in Europe.
The 16-year-old starred in the recent Uefa Under-17 Championship when he finished as top scorer.
A clutch of sides are showing a big interest in the Dutch youngster, but he is already tied down to a long-term deal at his club Feyenoord.
But his agent has confirmed that interest is mounting and a deal could be set-up whereby he would be loaned back to Feyenoord.
"The interest is known and clubs are willing to go really far," Arie Treffers told De Telegraaf.
"We have sent everyone to Feyenoord. Luc and his parents prefer to stay at Feyenoord for now.
"A construction where a big team would sign him and directly loan him out to Feyenoord could be an option."
