Simon Kjaer's agent Mikkel Beck admits clubs from all over Europe are tracking the Danish starlet.

Chelsea and Liverpool linked with Dane

Simon Kjaer's agent Mikkel Beck admits clubs from all over Europe are tracking the Danish starlet. Reports from Italy have suggested that Chelsea and Liverpool are the latest clubs to join the chase for the Palermo stopper. The 19-year-old has shone for the Sicilians this term and is now considered one of the hottest young prospects in Europe. He was highly-rated before Palermo snapped him up from FC Midtylland, with Real Madrid failing to land him ahead of the Italians - who handed Kjaer a five-year deal. However, Kjaer - who was called into the Denmark squad for the first time last month - is now being tipped to leave Palermo just 12 months after joining. His agent is former Middlesbrough and Derby striker Mikkel Beck, but he refused to confirm the interest from either Liverpool or Chelsea.

"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 though confirm reports that Kjaer has a clause in his contract that would allow him to move for a set €12million (£11million) fee at the end of the season. "There is a clause in his contract," said Beck. "It will allow him to move during a set period in the summer."
