Pulis has identified burly frontman Davies as the big danger when Bolton fight for their Premier League survival at the Britannia Stadium today.
Davies is out of contract this summer and Pulis said: “Kevin won’t struggle for offers this summer, that’s for sure.
“It will be interesting to see what Bolton do, regardless of how it finishes for them.
“I’ve always considered Kevin was as good as anything in the Premier League for the type of player he is.
“I remember him playing at Chesterfield and that semi-final at Old Trafford. They had a good side and we signed one of their players not long after, Darren Carr, the big centre-half.
“I asked Darren about Davies and he said he was an absolute handful.
“That was Darren saying that and he was as hard a player as I’ve ever known. For Darren to say that, you knew there was something in him. It doesn’t surprise me he’s been as successful."
