John Hughes has tipped Alan Gow for a Scotland cap and a move to the English Premiership - if the forward sticks with Falkirk for another season.
Alan Gow scored a hat-trick against Dundee United
Gow, linked with a move to Hibernian and Wolves, scored a hat-trick in the 5-1 thrashing of Dundee United.
And the Falkirk head coach said: "He's certainly got the talent for a full international career.
"No disrespect to the interested clubs, if he stays with us, I think he is destined for the Premiership."
The 24-year-old Gow is out of contract at the end of the season.
And Hughes may be forced to cash in during the January transfer window rather than lose him for nothing in the summer.
I know Wolves and Hibs want him

"There are a few clubs sniffing about Alan, but he's better off staying here for another year," said Hughes.
"I know Wolves and Hibs want him, but I still want to keep Alan.
"I've told Alan he could get lost at a Championship club, but, at the end of the day, I have to respect the player's wishes.
"I've seen players go elsewhere and stagnate, but here he will get a regular slot.
"I've seen plenty of guys jump ship because they think the grass is greener but it's not always the case.
"And I expect him to get called up to the next B international so Walter Smith can get a look at him."
