The agent for Lille centre-back Simon Kjaer has revealed that his client is flattered to be linked to the Premier League, but maintains there are no plans for a move in the winter transfer window.
Kjaer, 25, is reported to be a potential target for Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United this winter, having been starring in France since a €2 million from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2013, with the likes of AC Milan and Juventus also said to be courting in his signature.
Valued at around €10 million, the Denmark international commented last month that he would be interested in a move to Liverpool in particular, having been a lifelong fan of the club, but agent Mikkel Beck insists next summer is when options will start to be considered.
"Simon has achieved stability at a high level in a great league for so long that I, as an agent, finds it quite natural that he be associated with some of Europe's top clubs,” he told Danish publications BT.
“But, at the moment, we plan no change this winter. Things can happen earlier than next summer, but Simon can easily stay in Lille."
Kjaer himself echoed those remarks earlier last week when speaking to reporters, but did reiterate that a switch across the Channel is on his to-do list.
“I'm 25 years and my very best years of his career in front of me, so maybe next summer could be a good time to move on, but everything must fit,” he said.
“The English league is one of the few leagues that is exciting for me, but it is certainly not the case that I am completely set on England. Everything must fit perfectly. I never could make a switch just for a bigger salary, which I am very happy with in Lille.”
