A number of clubs in England are keeping tabs on Scottish Premiership top goalscorer Liam Boyce, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Ross County striker Boyce has been in red-hot form for the Staggies so far this season, scoring 10 goals in 15 league appearances to make him joint-top goalscorer alongside Celtic's Scott Sinclair.

Boyce's performances and prolific goalscoring rate have alerted several English sides who are looking to bolster their attacking options in the January transfer window, while a number of teams across Europe are also thought to be monitoring the former Werder Bremen man.

The 25-year-old was left of Michael O’Neill’s 23-man Northern Ireland squad for Euro 2016 in the summer, but he has fought his way back into contention as a result of his fine form for Ross County.

Boyce, who joined Ross County from Cliftonville in the summer of 2014, has scored 41 goals and laid on 16 assists for the Dingwall outfit since making the move to Scotland and has established himself as one of the best finishers in the Scottish Premiership.

Ross County are determined to keep hold of their star striker, but they are bracing themselves for interest in the Northern Ireland international next month when the transfer window reopens.
