Daryl Dike led a massive charge up the Championship table for Barnsley and landed the team in the promotion playoff. The team didn’t make the cut to the top flight, but the American striker was impressive in his performances and has been linked to several clubs in the past. This summer it seems like the market for him is really heating up and it’s only a matter of time until he moves to the English top flight permanently.

According to TalkSport, Dike is being linked to no fewer than eight teams. The site reports that Everton, Wolves, Southampton, Brighton, Crystal Palace, Norwich, West Brom and Fulham are interested in bringing him in from Orlando City. The site also noted that he is attracting interest from Germany, a new development in the Dike transfer rumor mill.

At just 20 years-old, Dike’s future is bright as he’s already proved that he can score in MLS and when stepping up a level to a more difficult league. Still, it remains to be seen what the final price for his services will be with Orlando City wanting to get this deal right.
