The 21-year-old is currently with Nuneaton Town, who he joined in November on a deal until the end of the season.
Roos was a highly-rated youngster at PSV Eindhoven and a Dutch youth international before injuries halted his progress and he had spells with top-flight clubs Willem II Tilburg and NEC Nijmegen.
Roos decided to move to England, but it is believed that he could not join a club in the Football League as the window had closed, which is why he accepted a move to Conference side Nuneaton.
But he is now set for a transfer in January after producing a string of top performances.
He kept six successive clean sheets in his first six games, and now boasts seven clean sheets in nine appearances, which has led to a host of clubs sending scouts to check on him.
Sky Sports understands that clubs from the Premier League to League Two are showing an interest in signing him, including Everton, Sunderland, Cardiff and Coventry.
His agent Lee Payne of Full Contact told Sky Sports: "Kelle has done wonderfully well since coming to England, he has settled at Nuneaton and put in a number of very good performances.
"He has a great pedigree, and is thought of highly in Holland so I am not surprised to hear that there may be a lot of interest in him."
