WEST BROM striker Jovan Malcolm has reportedly attracted transfer interest from Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.
The 16-year-old has netted seven goals for the Baggies Under-18s this season.
Malcolm scored four in last weekend’s clash against Liverpool Under 18s in a 6-3 thriller.
And his scoring performances has attracted the attention of the Premier League’s elite, the Mail claim.
The Championship outfit now face a battle to keep hold onto their rising star.
But the Baggies enter the international break top of the table, two points above Preston.
Veteran midfielder Gareth Barry finally signed a new contract with West Brom until the end of the season.
The Englishman immediately set his sights on adding to his record 653 Premier League appearances.
Barry, 38, feared his career could be over after suffering a crippling knee injury last season.
But Slaven Bilic re-assured him he was crucial to his promotion push and there would be a place for him with the Championship pacesetters once returned to full fitness.
Barry revealed seeing that light at the end of the tunnel gave him the incentive to battle back from his injury hell and intends to repay Bilic by helping Albion return to the Premier League.
