Championship hot-shot Nicky Maynard has been linked with a host of Barclays Premier League clubs according to SkySports.com.
His recent performances for Bristol City are said to have alerted the attention of even more potential suitors with Liverpool rumoured to be one of the clubs interested.
Since recovering from long-term injury, the sharp-shooting Maynard has scored three goals in four games to propel the Robins away from relegation, and Reds manager Kenny Dalglish is said to be monitoring his situation.
Maynard joined Bristol City for a club record £2.25million from Anfield neighbours Crewe Alexandra in 2008.
With just over a year left on his current contract, speculation is increasing that he is set to make the much-anticipated step up to the Barclays Premier League.
Liverpool Director of Football Strategy Damien Comolli is also said to be keen on running the rule over the exciting prospect.
And City teammate Albert Adomah has added to the many superlatives already hurled Maynard’s way since his recent resurgence to form.
"Maynard brings something completely different to the team. He's an out-and-out goal-scorer.
"When Nicky gets a chance, you know he is going to score. The entire team believes that, when he gets a chance in front of goal, the ball is going to end up in the back of the net," Adomah proclaimed.
The 24-year-old scored 21 goals last season but has missed the majority of this campaign after suffering a serious knee injury which put pay to a potential move to Liverpool or their Merseyside rivals Everton last summer.
His impressive return has sparked yet more rumours, but Maynard has played down his rapid revival, and the speculation that goes with it.
"Confidence is such an important part of football and, sometimes, it just takes one performance for everything to click into place," he said.
