Non-league football sensation Daniel Carr is being tracked by Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, reports the Daily Mail.

Carr currently plies his trade in the Isthmian League Division One South for Dulwich Hamlet, scoring an impressive 18 goals in 26 appearances this season. 

The former Reading academy player failed during a trial with Leeds United in the summer but was close to joining Carlton Athletic after impressing Chris Powell in similar circumstances. 

The youngster is considered to be one of the best prospects outside of the Football League and the Premier League trio have reportedly all expressed an interest in having Carr in for a trial.

Hamlet manager Gavin Rose said: "Arsenal and Chelsea want him in, which is feasible for us as he would still be able to play for us.

“The interest from Liverpool is firm, but that is quite similar with the London clubs.

“At his age it is potential. But if he is taken by the right club and works hard he can play at the top level.

"We have got to be careful that Daniel isn’t caught up in a circus. The important thing if he does go is that he goes to a club that really wants him.”

Carr was originally a winger before Hamlet introduced him to the striker role and he has never looked back. He has been training with Liverpool in the youth team and coaches are keeping an eye on his progress.

Dulwich Hamlet has always been considered a hotbed of talent and several former players have hit the heights of the Premier League in one way or another. Peter Crouch, Ian Wright and Simeon Jackson have all played for the club, whilst Alan Pardew learnt his trade for the south London club before embarking on a successful career in management.
