FC Nordsjaelland defender Jores Okore is being swamped with interest from top European clubs including Manchester United.
His agent Nicola Juric isn't surprised by the amount of attention the centre-back is attracting, although he claims to have had no direct contact from United despite their rumoured admiration.
Okore has caught the eye with his performances for his club in the Champions League this season, while he was also a member of Denmark squad competing in the summer at Euro 2012.
It's claimed that former United keeper Peter Schmeichel has recommended the 20-year-old to Sir Alex Ferguson and following on from his glowing endorsement, the Scot has had the player scouted.
Juric told bold.dk: "I am flattered and I am sure that Jores is flattered too. I believe that there are a lot of clubs interested in Jores but I have not heard anything from Manchester United. I only know that Peter Schmeichel has recommend Jores to Alex Ferguson.
"It is normal for teams in England to use two types of defenders, a stopper and a ball-playing defender like Daniel Agger. There are not a lot of these ball-playing defenders like Jores available.
"There is interest from Russia, England, Germany, France and the two big clubs in Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Kiev and Jores is open for anything. The most important thing for him is that any potential suitor really believes in him."
