Everton have made a ÂŁ500,000 bid for Queens Park Rangers starlet Josh Bowler, sources have told TEAMtalk.
The 17-year-old winger has just penned his first professional deal at Loftus Road but they face a big battle to keep him.
He made his senior debut in QPRâ€™s final game of the season at Norwich and is highly-rated by manager Ian Holloway â€“ but it looks unlikely if he will have him at his disposal next term.
A tall wideman – likened in style to Chris Waddle – Everton are now hoping to beat a host of Premier League rivals to his signature with Arsenal and Manchester City also making enquires.
TEAMtalk understands that Evertonâ€™s bid is ÂŁ500,000 with the deal potential rising to ÂŁ3million based on a number of criteria but we understand the West London club are looking for more money down before agreeing to sell.

The EFL are ‘very disappointed’ with clubs response to the independent inquiry into the game’s sexual abuse scandal, as eight clubs fail to respond.
The inquiry team led by Clive Sheldon QC wrote to every club in England and Wales in January asking for information to be supplied by March 15 at the latest.
Those clubs who failed to reply could face Football Association sanction, although the EFL insist they have subsequently reminded the clubs concerned of their responsibilities.
In a statement the EFL said: “The EFL was very disappointed to learn from the Football Association on the 11th May that eight of its Clubs had failed to provide a response to enquiries made by Clive Sheldon QC as part of his Independent Review.
“Having been made aware of the situation, the EFL immediately made contact with the relevant Clubs and secured a response.
“The EFL is satisfied that its Clubs were not seeking to ‘obstruct’ the process but acknowledges that the failure to respond within the given timeframes created unnecessary speculation and was unhelpful.
“All 72 Clubs will once again be reminded that the EFL expects their full co-operation with the Review.”
In the statement, the EFL added that May 11 was the first time it had become aware of a potential issue, and by May 19, all 72 clubs under its jurisdiction had responded.

He made 19 appearances for Ian Holloway’s side during their latest campaign, scoring once.
Mackie told the club’s website: “Everyone knows how I feel about QPR and when the opportunity came up to extend my stay here, it was a no-brainer for me.

QPR boss Ian Holloway is already looking ahead to next season by indicating he would like to sign three or four players.
Speaking to TalkSPORT, Holloway said: “I’m hoping for three or four new signings to make us a more steady team.
“If we get control of our budget the way we want to and the way we need to, you can then build from that position”.
“Unfortunately now, we don’t get too many agents ringing us thinking that the gravy train is still running, they know it’s dried up and they’re not going to bother.”
The 54-year-old has also admitted that he wants to avoid the mistakes the club has made with transfers in past seasons.
“What we don’t want is people coming to us to fill their pockets with loads of money, and not have the right drive and desire on the pitch.”
“Unfortunately QPR have seen that over the last few years,” said Holloway.
The former QPR player, joined the club for a second spell as manger in November last year after replacing Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
However, the club would only go on to finish 18th in the table,Â narrowly avoidingÂ relegation in the process.

English Football League matches were watched by more than 18million people in the 2016-2017 season, the EFL have announced.
The EFL announced its cumulative attendance figures on Thursday, with 18,107,332 fans clicking through turnstiles across the three divisions.
The total is the highest since 1959 and the 14th highest in the league’s history.
Chief executive Shaun Harvey said:Â “Football attendances clearly benefit from promotion and relegation as those teams carrying larger supporter bases move around divisions.
But what is particularly pleasing with this latest set of data is the fact the EFL has seen a three per cent growth season-on-season when this factor is removed and you analyse the attendances of the 67 clubs who have been members for the past two seasons.
“It is clear to see that the EFL continues to be one of the most watched football competitions and our clubs deserve huge credit for continuing to find new and innovative ways of encouraging supporters through their turnstiles.”
The figure was an 11 per cent increase on the tally from a season ago, with the league also pointing out that the 72 EFL clubs have a combined social media following in excess of 26.5 million.
