Skysports.com understands a host of English clubs are tracking Auxerre midfielder Delvin Ndinga.
Ndinga has impressed at Auxerre in the last couple of seasons after being snapped up from Congolese side Diables Noires.
The 23-year-old caught the eye during Auxerre's Champions League campaign this season and he is establishing himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe.
Ndinga's performances have not gone unnoticed among Europe's top clubs with Manchester United and Liverpool credited with an interest in the powerful midfielder.
The Congo international is under contract with Auxerre until 2014, but they could face a fight to keep hold of him this summer if any of his suitors firm up their interest.
Ndinga's agent, Milan Calasan, has confirmed a number of English clubs are keeping tabs on the midfielder.
"I know a lot of English clubs are watching Delvin," Calasan told skysports.com.
"Delvin has impressed in the Champions League and a lot of teams are keeping an eye on him.
"I believe Delvin would be ideal for England as he has all the attributes to be a success in England and he would love the chance to play in the Premier League."
