According to the Express and Star, Arsenal, Southampton and West Ham United have scouted Dominic Iorfa.

The report claims that Wolverhampton Wanderers have a tough task ahead of them in keeping hold of talented defender Iorfa as he attracts plenty of interest from the Premier League.

The England U21 international is a Wolves academy graduate and has represented the club more than 60 times since making his first-team debut at Molineux aged just 17.

The now 20-year-old established himself as a regular for Kenny Jackett’s side during this past season’s Championship campaign, and his progression has been quite rapid.

Iorfa took his development at club level and excelled on the international stage as he played a key role in England U21s’ recent success at the Toulon Tournament in France.

The report claims Crystal Palace have long kept tabs on him, yet the latest trio to have scouted the youngster are Southampton, Arsenal and West Ham as they have been alerted to his development.

Both the Saints and the Hammers have long been clubs to have produced their own top English talent, while the Gunners are renowned under Arsene Wenger for signing England’s best up and coming stars.

Irofa has a contract at Wolves until 2019 after recently signing a new three-and-a-half year deal with the club.

Wolves will be desperate to keep hold of their prized asset, though the new finances available to Premier League clubs could see them in a battle to retain his services beyond the summer.
