Middlesbrough starlet Bryn Morris is being targeted by Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, according to Sky Sports.

The 16-year-old is currently earning rave reviews in the Championship side's highly acclaimed youth academy on Teeside, and impressed in this season's FA Youth Cup campaign.

Morris, who can play in defence or midfield, has established himself as an integral part of the England U16 squad, and regularly captain's Kenny Swain's team.

His progress is believed to have attracted the attention of a number of England's top clubs with Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson the first manager to declare an interest in bringing him to Old Trafford.

However, Kenny Dalglish and Roberto Mancini are also now believed to be weighing up prospective bids, while Stamford Bridge scouts are also monitoring Morris' situation.

Middlesbrough are unable to sign the talented teenager on a professional deal because of his age, meaning the club would only be due a compensation deal if he were to leave.

Anfield is renowned for nurturing promising young talent, and promoting through to the Liverpool first-team, with a number of players now cutting their teeth in the Premier League.

However, Manchester United and Chelsea will also pose attractive options for Morris, whose long-term future looks set to be away from the Riverside.
