Portuguese club Vitoria Guimaraes are the latest European outfit to try to tempt Crystal Palace's 16-year old midfield star Jadan Raymond from Selhurst Park.
Raymond, who is out of contract at the end of next month, has told Palace he will not accept their present offer of a new contract.
Vitoria have contacted Crystal Palace to register their interest in Raymond, who has previously attracted interest from both Benfica and Valencia.
The Portuguese club are hoping to steal a march on other suitors wanting to sign the versatile left-footer by getting permission from Palace to speak to him now, rather than waiting until his contract expires.
He represented Wales in the 2018 Victory Shield and attracted admirers from across the continent after a series of quality performances for England U17s in the Syrenka Cup in Poland.
Palace remain keen to keep their young star but face losing him for just £250,000 in compensation if he were to leave when his contract runs out next month.
Vitoria have been keeping a keen eye on young English talent after capturing the signings of Marcus Edwards and Easah Suliman from Tottenham and Aston Villa respectively last summer.
