Dike scored a brace to give Barnsley the 2-1 victory against Luton Town on Monday morning and they have climbed to fifth place in the Championship with 68 points and a record of 20-8-12. The United States striker has adapted well to England’s second tier league and he won March’s FLW Fans’ Player of the Month award in the Championship.

Apart from winning the Player of the Month Award, Dike was included in WhoScored’s Team of the Month and won Barnsley’s goal of the month award in March in the Championship as well. His good performances have ignited the interest of Everton and Chelsea, both of whom could make a bid to Orlando to sign the USMNT striker.

The MLS franchise has been clear that any team interested in signing Dike will have to pay his $20 million price tag. Currently Barnsley have a clause in the deal to sign Dike permanently from Orlando City SC, but they will only pay that fee if they get promoted to the Premier League for next season.
