Reports emanating from Portugal claim that Porto have opened talks with Monchengladbach for the German youth international.
The 19-year-old is highly-rated at Monchengladbach and Jansen is regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe.
Jansen has been linked with a move to Arsenal after reportedly catching the attention of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
Porto chief Co Adriaanse is keen to bolster his defence ahead of the close of the transfer window on Wednesday and could launch a bid for Jansen.
"If we can get a defender before the close of the transfer window, it will add more security ahead of a long season in Portugal and in Europe," said Adriaanse.
