Derby County are set to put youngster Will Hughes up for auction as they look to raise funds, reports The Daily Mail. 

Hughes, who has been in sensational form for the Rams so far this season, is wanted by a whole host of England's elite clubs. 

The likes of Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Everton have all been credited with interest for the wonderkid and now it looks likely the 17-year-old will depart County in the near future. 

Reports have suggested that so far only the Gunners have made contact regarding the signature of Hughes, however it now looks likely that the Premier League's top-dogs will go head-to-head for the starlet. 

It has been suggested that Derby rate the youngster at around £4 million as they prepare to offload him in the January transfer market. 

And as the likes of Arsenal, City and Liverpool all challenge for the title, the three clubs will now go into battle for England's teen sensation. 

However, the Merseyside duo and the Citizens may well be playing catch up to Arsenal for his signature.
