English clubs are being urged to take a closer look at Seattle Sounders flyer Steve Zakuani.

The former Arsenal trainee has been in stellar form for the Sounders in recent months.

Former Derby County star Alan Hinton, who now calls Sounders games, told MLSSoccer.com: "Let's say I called up a scout or a manager in Europe and said, 'I've got a player for you to look at.
