Premier League sides Brentford and Bournemouth are monitoring Blackpool hotshot Jerry Yates.

Scottish giants Rangers are also keeping tabs on the 25-year-old, who scored twice in the 4-2 Championship victory over Preston on Saturday.

Yates has netted eight goals this season to join Norwich’s Josh Sargent, Oscar Estupinan of Hull and Blackburn’s Ben Brereton Diaz at the top of the Championship scoring charts.

The Bees and Cherries were among ten clubs with scouts running the rule over the £5million-rated forward, according to the Sun.

West Brom and Watford were also in attendance at Bloomfield Road to watch Yates, who has two years left on his contract.

Blackpool lie 18th in the table and, with several suitors interested, the EFL goal machine could be the subject of a January transfer window scramble.
