The 19-year-old defender is currently on loan with Bundesliga champions Schalke 04 from Bidvest Wits.

Cross' teammate and defensive partner, Malick Thiaw, is said to have already been watched by scouts this season, with the Daily Mail suggesting that Cross will be more closely examined when football resumes across the globe.

Cross has impressed in his 18 appearances in the Under-19 Bundesliga, with the British tabloid saying: "Premier League scouts will watch Schalke Under-19 defender Bradley Cross when football resumes in Germany.

"The 19-year-old centre-back is on loan with the Bundesliga club from South African side Bidvest Wits and has benefited from playing alongside the highly-rated Malick Thiaw, who has been watched closely by Europe's elite clubs this season."

Cross, who at this stage is expected to return to Wits at the end of the season, holds a UK passport.
