Shankland, 24, has scored 13 times in just seven games since joining from fellow Championship side Ayr United.
He netted a hat-trick at the weekend against Greenock Morton, with scouts from Rangers and Celtic understood to be watching him closely.
He had been linked with both clubs, as well as a number down south, during the summer before opting to head to Tayside.
