There are a host of clubs interested in signing Ronald Sobowale, according to The Daily Mail.
Premier League clubs such as Leicester City and Watford are tracking Sobowale. Championship duo Fulham and West Bromwich Albion are also in the hunt. But Middlesbrough lead the race at the moment.
Middlesbrough have taken the 22-year-old on trial and will check on him in the coming weeks. He has previously spent time on trial with Cardiff City, scoring against Vancouver Whitecaps.

Sobowale currently plays for Whyteleafe in the Isthmian League South East Division. This is the eighth level on the football pyramid but he could move up to the first or second tier.
The former Chelsea schoolboy, who was released aged 15, has scored 10 goals in just 11 games this season. He will now be given the chance to show what he can do at Middlesbrough.
If Middlesbrough opt against signing him, Watford, Leicester, West Brom or Fulham could pounce.
Sobowale is working his way back up through the ranks after his Chelsea disappointment seven years ago. The non-league route is now a well-trodden path with Premier League stars like Jamie Vardy and Michail Antonio proving it can be done.
Middlesbrough look like they have first refusal on the young striker, who has been in prolific form. Stepping up six or seven tiers will be difficult but Sobowale will be eager to take his chance.
