Wolves teenager Owen Otasowie is attracting the attention of a number of the biggest clubs in Europe with Liverpool, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain all tracking the progress of the versatile youngster.

The 18-year-old has not made a senior appearance for Wolves, but his impressive displays for the Under-23 and Under-21 sides have caught the eye of numerous scouts.

Wolves Under-23s took on PSG Under-23s in the Premier League International Cup and the French side were thoroughly impressed by his performance.

Otasowie has also appeared in the EFL Trophy this season, in wins over Carlisle and Morecambe before a defeat to Blackpool.

Listed as a midfielder by the official Wolves website, the teenager can also play at centre-back and could also be caught up in a battle for his loyalties at international level.

The teenager can represent England, USA or Nigeria and if his progress continues then all three will be interested in his services.

The big clubs are circling now because Otasowie is out of contract in the summer, so he will be available for just a compensation fee.

Bundesliga side Schalke are also credited with an interest in the youngster, so there is fierce competition to attract his attention in the coming weeks.

Wolves will be looking to fend off the interest and tie down the bright prospect to a longer contract at the club, with the promise of first team football at Molineux.
