Sky Sports understands a host of clubs are considering summer bids for Oldham's highly-rated goalkeeper Alex Cisak.
The 22-year-old has enjoyed a solid first season in League One since joining from Accrington Stanley and his impressive performances have not gone unnoticed.
The commanding keeper, who featured for Australia in the Under-20 World Cup last summer and is closing on an imminent call-up to the full national team, made 47 appearances for the Latics this term before a shoulder injury ended his season prematurely.
Championship scouts have been in regular attendance at Boundary Park this season and interest could be stepped up over the coming weeks.
Cisak came through the ranks at Leicester, but has blossomed since leaving the Foxes in 2010 in search of regular first-team football, with Oldham boss Paul Dickov expecting big things from the young shot-stopper.
"I speak to (goalkeeping coach) Eric Steele at Manchester United a lot and they don't expect their young keepers to reach their peak until 28 or 30," said Dickov.
"When you think that we've got goalkeepers on our books that are 21 and 22 playing in the first team and performing well it bodes well for the future."
