Premier League clubs are keeping tabs on AFC Wimbledon loanee Marcus Forss.

The 20-year-old is on loan with the League One side from Brentford and is catching the eye of sides in the top flight, according to a report by TEAMtalk.

Forss, who is a Finland Under-21 international, has scored seven goals in seven games for the Dons since his loan switch in early September. This form has alerted the likes of West Ham United, Southampton and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Bees are apparently weighing up whether to recall him in January but could face a battle to hold onto his services in the future.

Forss began his career in Finland with spells at a youngster at FC Ruskon Pallo, Turun Weikot and FDS-Suomi before moving to England to join West Bromwich Albion in 2012.

He rose up through the youth ranks at the Hawthorns but was released by the Baggies in May 2017 and subsequently signed for Brentford on an initial two-year contract.

Forss scored 11 goals in his opening 23 games for the Bees’ development squad which earned him a new four-year deal.

He has made 12 appearances for their first-team during his time at Griffin Park so far, scoring three times.
