Scouts from all three Premier League clubs, plus Aston Villa and Brentford, reportedly attended Stevenage’s League One clash with Carlisle United on Saturday.
Although it is not known which clubs were watching Wilmot, the 18-year-old did his chances of earning a move to a bigger club no harm at all in the 0-0 draw.
Tottenham were last week reported to have agreed a deal with Stevenage for the player, who is valued at £850,000.
But a transfer has yet to go through, which seems to have put a host of other clubs – including the Baggies – on high alert.
The teenager made only his second League One start of the season on Saturday but he did play the 90 minutes twice in their recent FA Cup third-round tie against Reading – the former club of Albion technical director Nicky Hammond.
Dundee United boss Csaba Laszlo has been left hoping for St Mirren to slip up in the race to seal promotion to the Ladbrokes Premiership.
Crewe will consider starting Chris Dagnall when they host Forest Green on Tuesday.
Northampton striker Kevin van Veen is hoping to make his first start in over a month in the home game against Shrewsbury.
