Crystal Palace, Swansea City, Bournemouth and Brighton & Hove Albion are all being linked with late moves for the Wigan Athletic player.

Nick Powell of Wigan Athletic runs with the ball during The Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round match between Wigan Athletic and West Ham United on January 27, 2018 in Wigan, United Kingdom.

Crystal Palace, Swansea City and Bournemouth are the latest clubs to be linked with Nick Powell.

The Daily Mail reported on Wednesday morning that Powell was the subject of a £3 million offer from Brighton & Hove Albion overnight.

But according to BBC Sport's Ian Dennis, Palace, Swansea, Bournemouth and Brighton are all chasing the Wigan Athletic forward.

Once signed by Manchester United as Paul Scholes' heir, Powell has been forced to take a step back since his 2016 release by the Red Devils.

The 23-year-old endured a difficult first season as a permanent Wigan player, which ended in the Latics' relegation to League One.

But he has been in fine form this campaign, firing Paul Cook's side to the top of the standings with 11 goals and three assists.

The Daily Mail have since reported Crystal Palace, Swansea and Bournemouth interest on their deadline day live blog [11:25], but claim it would require a bid in excess of £6 million to get Wigan thinking.

They add that, at this stage, Powell is not expecting to be allowed a transfer.

Would Powell be a good signing for Palace, Swansea, Bournemouth or Brighton?
