FC Dallas midfielder Brek Shea's agent has admitted a move to England would be an 'interesting option' amid interest from Liverpool and Manchester City.
Reports had emerged that the Premier League pair were interested in the recruiting the player.
And the player's agent said Shea would be potentially interested in a switch to England, with Liverpool and City licking their lips.
"I do know people are asking me about Brek as he is the premier talent in America," Barry MacLean said.
"There is a real buzz around Brek as he is a real quality player.
"He has a contract with the MLS and FC Dallas for another three years so at this point it is premature to talk about a move."
"It's on his radar,” MacLean added. “He is a young player with high aspirations and every player wants to play at the highest level.
"I think England would be an interesting option for Brek, but we will wait and see what happens."
Schalke had reported just ahead of Liverpool and City by bidding £2.5 million for the player, which was rejected.
Both City and Liverpool have begun investing in young players, with both clubs using the summer window to bolster their academy.
