According to HITC Sport, a whole host of clubs are chasing AFC Fylde’s James Hardy.
The clubs interested are believed to be Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic, Bolton Wanderers, and League Two outfit Blackpool.
But the report also claims that Premier League side Everton are also interested the youngster’s services.
Fleetwood Town are also rumoured to be looking at the forward, and understandably links are being drawn between Hardy and Jamie Vardy who spent one season with the Cod Army before leaving for Leicester, where he went on to lift the Premier League trophy, all after being plucked from non-league football.
Hardy currently plays for AFC Fylde who compete in the National League North which is the sixth tier of English football.
However Fylde are renowned for being one of the richest clubs in non-league football therefore the asking price for the striker could be high, especially since there’s a number of clubs keen on signing him.
