That’s according to 90min journalist Matt O’Connor-Simpson, who tweeted: “Cameron Carter-Vickers is attracting plenty of interest. Fulham & Southampton are the latest to join the race but the likes of Crystal Palace, West Ham & Wolves are looking too.”
🚨 Cameron Carter-Vickers is attracting plenty of interest.
Fulham & Southampton are the latest to join the race but the likes of Crystal Palace, West Ham & Wolves are looking too.
Celtic obviously keen but pull of Premier League football is an issue. https://t.co/CPWdRzkncZ

The 24-year-old centre-back has spent this season on loan at Scottish giants Celtic and appears to have no future at Tottenham under Antonio Conte.
Previous reports claim he could cost in the region of £10m.
At least one centre-back must be on Patrick Vieira’s transfer list this summer with both James Tomkins and Jaroslaw Jak’s respective contracts set to expire next month.
Moreover, 21-year-old Nathan Ferguson could be a player that the south London outfit look to cash in on this transfer window with the defender’s current deal set to expire next summer.
The signings of Marc Guehi and Joachim Andersen have proven to be shrewd with the duo amounting to a combined 74 appearances across all competitions this term.
Defensively, Vieira’s men have been decent, conceding 42 goals in 35 matches in the Premier League at a rate of 1.2 a game, with only seven other sides boasting the same or better records.
However, adding depth at the back to the Eagles squad is vital.
Carter-Vickers has enjoyed a successful loan spell in Glasgow, with Chris Sutton describing one of the defender’s Old Firm performances as “immense.”
The £20k-per-week USA international has made 42 appearances for the Hoops and looks set to lift the Scottish Premiership title with Celtic boasting a six-point advantage over fierce rivals Rangers at the summit of the Scottish top-flight.
However, whether the 24-year-old is good enough to become a regular at Selhurst Park is yet to be seen, particularly after strong seasons from Guehi and Andersen.
Although, if the American was to shift one of the two centre-backs out of the starting line up it would most likely be Andersen.
The Dane has averaged a match rating of 6.89/10 this term whilst his English teammate has achieved a rating of 7.03 whilst also captaining Palace on occasion and making his senior England debut in March.
Therefore, if Carter-Vickers is to join Crystal Palace as a regular first-team player, it could be bad news for Andersen.
