EVERTON whizkid Ellis Simms has sparked interest in Germany and France PLUS international teams.
The 18-year-old has smashed the 40-GOAL barrier for the Under-18s at Goodison but has gone under the radar.
He can play for England, Poland and Jamaica and is yet to commit to a country yet.
And Bundesliga clubs are circling as the teenager is on a scholarship deal on Merseyside which runs out in the summer.
Marco Silva, who has been short of No9 options this season, has been impressed with Simms and there is talk of a first-team debut soon.
Everton also want to tie him down to a professional deal but that has not stopped the likes of Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen scouting him.
Monaco and Lyon are also willing to take him to France to kick-start his senior career, with their interest in English youngsters increasing recently.
England Under-19 defender Jonathan Panzo is already at Monaco after starting at Chelsea, while Lyon swooped for Reo Griffiths from Tottenham last summer.
Simms goal record has made him one of the next big talents foreign clubs are looking at.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is attracting interest from Bayern Munich, while Jadon Sancho already plays for Borussia Dortmund.
