Ross County forward Liam Boyce is a target for English Championship side Burton Albion.
Albion are ready to bid £500,000 for the 26-year-old, with the fee triggering a release clause in the County forward’s contract.
Boyce is in the final year of his deal at Victoria Park and ended the season as the Scottish Premiership’s leading goalscorer with 23 goals.
Boyce has been on international duty with Northern Ireland and played in his country’s 1-0 World Cup qualifying win against Azerbaijan on Saturday. He also scored his first goal for his country in the friendly win against New Zealand on June 2.
Staggies assistant manager Billy Dodds recently claimed it would take a bid of £1million for Boyce to leave the club but Albion are ready to test County’s resolve. The English club raided County last summer when they paid £300,000 for midfielder Jackson Irvine.
