Tottenham and Everton are among a host of clubs in the hunt to sign Sheffield Wednesday contract rebel Sean Clare, according to a report.
Team Talk claims that Southampton, Leicester, Norwich and Sunderland are also keeping tabs on Clare, 21, as his contract at Hillsborough winds down.
It is understood that Clare is likely to leave the Owls at the end of the season when his contract expires as he has rejected multiple offers of a new deal already.
He has only recently been promoted to the first-team by new manager Jos Luhukay after impressing in training and scored his first goal for Sheffield Wednesday in the 4-2 loss to Aston Villa at the weekend.
Team Talk adds that the South Yorkshire club are still working hard on trying to get the midfield enforcer to agree terms to a new deal.
Clare, who stands at 6ft 2in and can play in a variety of positions, has made just three appearances for Wednesday this season after returning from a loan spell at Gillingham in League One.
The 21-year-old has played as a defensive midfielder in his outings for the Hillsborough club, but can also play on the right wing, right-back or in a more central role.
Football Insider verdict
At the age of 21, Clare would not make a worthwhile signing for either Tottenham or Everton. The midfielder is well below the quality that is needed by Premier League clubs and if he has only just started to get games in the Championship at that age then he is not likely to amount to being a decent top-flight performer. Clare does seem like he’d be a quality addition for one of the Championship teams interested in him. It seems there’s a chance that he could still sign a new deal at Sheffield Wednesday, but years of reserves football and being sent out on loan will have likely turned his head.
