Macoumba Kandji has been impressing in the MLS as the strike partner to former Aston Villa hitman Juan Pablo Angel but has risen to international prominence in the last week following his devastating performances alongside Thierry Henry against both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.
His recent form has seen the 24-year-old become coveted by a host of clubs across Europe with Blackpool believed to be trying to steal a march on their rivals by stepping up their interest imminently.
Kandji's agent, Richard Trafford, revealed to Vital Football earlier today that he's fielded calls about the 6'4 front man - one of which being from the Seasiders - but that for the time being a move is not necessarily on the cards.
'I've taken calls from a few clubs recently, but that's natural, his performances against Spurs and City were brilliant last week and he's not going to stop there - he's a bright prospect.
'Mac Kandji is a New York Red Bulls player; he's contracted to be so and fully committed to their championship push. As with any player, playing in the Premiership is a dream and would be the pinnacle of any footballer's career,' Trafford said.
Bolton Wanderers have also been accredited with an interest in Kandji.
'Macoumba can play up front or on the wing and is a great asset to New York and MLS football. The fact that he's been playing out wide has meant the goals haven't been coming as they might've done but the assists and work rate is there, he's a real team player,' Trafford continued.
'He's maybe the fastest player in the MLS and at 6'4 is a real physical handful too.
'He plans to play for the USA rather than Senegal and Bob Bradley (USA manager) would have had him at the World Cup but his metatarsal injury prevented that.'
While the Seasiders have had problems securing work permits this summer, as we've seen with Israel's Dekel Keinan, it is thought that due to the exceptional talent and legitimate reasoning for his international caps 'Big Mac' Kandji will be granted an exception much in the way Tim Howard and more recently Javier Hernandez did for Manchester United.
