Jores Okore: Linked with a move to England after impressing for Nordsjaelland
A number of clubs have been in contact over a possible move for Nordsjaelland centre-back Jores Okore, according to the player's agent.
Denmark international Okore has impressed in his homeland over the past couple of years and has enhanced his reputation in the UEFA Champions League this season.
Chelsea have previously been linked with a move for the 20-year-old and fresh reports suggest Manchester United are also keeping tabs on his progress, along with Serie A champions Juventus.
The player's representative, Nikola Juric Jaegerfeld, has refused to be drawn on which clubs have expressed an interest and warned that Okore would cost a lot of money.
He told notiziariosportivo.com: "Juventus and Manchester United interested in him? I cannot say specifically which clubs have shown interest, but I can confirm that there have been contacts.
"If a club want him they will have to make an offer in January at his club, but Jores is focused on Nordsjaelland and is not thinking about the market.
"How much is his price? He was voted the best Nordsjaelland youngster for two consecutive seasons and has already played in the Danish national team.
"Fiorentina have sold a player of this type (Matija Nastasic) at Manchester City, and Okore's situation is similar."
