Bristol Rovers starlet Shaquille Hunter is attracting attention from a host of Barclays Premier League clubs including Manchester City and Liverpool reports skysports.com.

The 16-year-old winger has already been called up to Rovers' first-team on a number of occasions this season, and is emerging as one of the Pirates' prized assets.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is a known admirer of bright young talent, and is believed to be keeping tabs on Hunter with a view to luring him to Anfield.

However, with up to a dozen top-flight clubs also said to be monitoring the situation, Liverpool will face a fight to secure his signature.

Rovers must now decide whether to cash-in on Hunter before the Elite Player Performance Plan [EPPP] is introduced this summer, which could see the League Two outfit miss out on a bumper sale.

The ruling will set a tariff for young players being sold to clubs, but if Rovers decide to sell now they could command a fee from Liverpool or Manchester City in excess of £1million.
