Skysports.com understand a number of league clubs are tracking Morecambe striker Danny Carlton.
Carlton is rated as one of the best young talents outside the Football League after impressing at Morecambe.
The 22-year-old scored 18 goals in the Conference last season finishing as Morecambe's top scorer.
Blackpool tried to sign Carlton earlier in the summer, but the deal failed to materialise.
Carlton has started the new season in fine style and his performances have had scouts flocking to Christie Park.
Several League One and League Two sides are believed to be watching developments at Christie Park and could make a move for Carlton before the close of the transfer window.
The talented striker has less than a year to run on his contract and as he is under 24 he could leave for a minimal fee next summer.
Morecambe are thought to be hoping to tie him down to a new long-term deal, but should a league club come in for him the ambitious Carlton could find it hard to turn down a move.
