AaB Aalborg star Michael Jakobsen is attracting the attention of a number of Premier League clubs, skysports.com understands.
However, it appears the highly-rated stopper could be bound for the Bundesliga with a string of German sides ready to do business.
The 22-year-old was spotted by PSV Eindhoven as a teenager but was unable to make the breakthrough at the Philips Stadion - playing just one first-team game.
He returned to Denmark where he rekindled his career with AaB and his performances in this season's UEFA Champions League campaign, including a goal in their 2-2 draw with Manchester United, have brought him to the attention of a host of clubs.
Now it is understood Bolton, Everton and Newcastle are all considering making a move for the defender - who can play at left-back or centre-half.
Jakobsen has just 12 months left on his current deal and AaB could now be ready to sell.
But the English clubs interested could have to move quickly as Werder Bremen are understood to have made contact over a potential deal.
Borussia Monchengladbach, Schalke and Hamburg are also interested as Jakobsen looks set to get a fresh chance to further his career away from his homeland.
