Simon Kjaer’s agent Mikkel Beck has said that top clubs throughout Europe are chasing the talented youngster.

Reports from Italy claim that Liverpool and Chelsea have both entered the race to snap up the Palermo stopper. The 19 year old has caught the eye of many scouts with his performances this season.

The youngster was spotted by Palermo’s scouts at FC Midtylland, who managed to persuade him to join them on a five year deal rather than move to Real Madrid, who were also interested.

The Danish starlet could be set to leave Palermo after just a year in Italy.

The former Middlesbrough and Derby striker Mikkel Beck is his agent and has refused to deny speculation that the two Premiership giants are lining up moves.

“I cannot talk about specific clubs, but it is natural that the top clubs in Europe are following Simon – he has been outstanding this season,” he told skysports.com.

“I have to comment all the time on Simon, but that is purely down to how he is doing.”

“We don’t know what is going to happen, he is very happy at Palermo and could easily stay put.”

“A move is not on his mind at all, he is getting on with playing and that is how it should be.”

Beck did confirm that there is a release clause in his client’s contract, however, allowing him to move for £11m.

“There is a clause in his contract,” said Beck.

“It will allow him to move during a set period in the summer.”
