Alex Kral could be the next Czech star on his way to the Premier League.
The midfielder, 22, is starring in the Russian League with Spartak Moscow after a £12million move in September 2019 from Slavia Prague.
Now top-flight scouts are swarming all over the central midfielder who is valued at £30m.
Kral, who has 14 international caps, is set to play his latest game for the Czech Republic at home to Slovakia on Wednesday night.
Suitors are considering January bids as his price could rocket further if he impresses at next summer's Euros where the Czech Republic are in Group D with England, Scotland and Croatia.
Kral has enjoyed a whirlwind rise to prominence after an £800,000 switch to Czech League champions Slavia from mid-table Teplice in January 2019.

He thrived on the big stage helping Slavia win the league and knock out Sevilla from the Europa League in 2019.
His Czech compatriots and ex-Slavia teammates Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal have since moved to West Ham where they have impressed.

Tough-tackling right-back Coufal was brought to England last month by agents K2K, alongside Stephen Hunt – and they represent Kral as well.
Midfielder Soucek, 25, helped keep the Hammers up last term with three goals after arriving in January on loan from Slavia Prague before a permanent £13million summer move.
The 6ft 4in star is already off the mark this season after scoring the winner last time out against Fulham.
The 1-0 win also saw Coufal, 28, make his fifth start for the club in defence since a bargain £6m move from Prague in October.
