Barclays Premier League big guns Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal are all reportedly monitoring non-league pair Quade Taylor and Paul McCallum.

The relatively unknown duo currently ply their trade with Isthmian League Division One South side Dulwich Hamlet and could yet make a sensational move to the top flight.

According to, West Ham and Southampton will battle United, Arsenal and Liverpool for the youngsters and each club is taking a keen interest in Dulwich Hamlet's Championship Manager Cup fourth round clash with Romford on Tuesday.

McCallum, 18, has been trailed by no less than 14 clubs in recent weeks Hamlet boss Gavin Rose is hoping for a quick conclusion to the ongoing transfer saga.

“What we’re trying to ascertain is which are serious about taking the lad on,” he told the South London Press.

“Viewing 14 clubs just isn’t viable and as a contracted player he shouldn’t need to do that. Someone has got to seize the opportunity to take him."

West Ham have already taken the starlet on trial, but are expected to be beaten to his signature should United, Liverpool or Arsenal step up their interest.

The three giants are also understood to be locked in battle to sign 17-year-old Southampton midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who looks set to leave the club this month.

According to The Sun, United are late entrants into the race for the highly-rated youngster, while Arsenal are thought to be ahead of Liverpool and appear to be the most likely to land him before the transfer window closes.

Arsenal's reputation of developing young players is thought to appeal to Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of Gunners winger Theo Walcott.

Meanwhile, Liverpool aren't expected to give up on the precocious talent without a fight as they attempt to maintain their promise to invest in future talent.

Liverpool owners New England Sports Ventures have outlined their plans to bring the best young players in Europe to Anfield, and a deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain would represent quite a coup for the Reds.
