A number of clubs are considering a move for King's Lynn Town striker Michael Gyasi, the Lynn News understands.

National League Chesterfield are believed to be at the front of the queue for the German-born Ghanaian attacker along with a Scottish Championship side.

A source close to the Derbyshire club revealed that Spireites boss Paul Cook has been keeping close tabs on the frontman since he netted in a 3-2 defeat for Dover Athletic towards the end of last season.

The 21-year-old forward, who has made 34 appearances for the Linnets, signed a loan deal with the Whites in January.

During his time in Kent, the nimble-footed frontman found the back of the net five times, including a hat-trick in an incredible 6-5 defeat at Wrexham back in March.

Gyasi spent his early years with Northampton Town Centre of Excellence before joining Chelsea's Academy at the age of 11 for a substantial undisclosed fee.

Two years later he moved on to the Academy at Leicester City before spells with a number of non-league clubs.

The Linnets are likely to command a transfer fee for the forward who has a year remaining on his contract.

Club chairman Stephen Cleeve declined to speak on the speculation linking Gyasi with a move away from Norfolk.

Only yesterday, the Linnets lost the services of the out-of-contract Ross Barrows who parted company with Lynn to continue playing in the National League next season.

Sheffield-based Barrows joined Altrincham who are assembling their first-ever professional squad.
