United are reported to be tracking the highly-rated defender as they look to bolster their central defensive options.

Okore has impressed for FC Nordsjaelland in the UEFA Champions League this season and has also broken into the Denmark national team

The 20-year-old's performances have not gone unnoticed by United scouts and several other top sides across Europe.

Okore's agent, Nicola Juric, admits former United keeper Peter Schmeichel has recommended Okore to Sir Alex Ferguson, but he admits he has yet to have any contact with anyone from Old Trafford.

"I am flattered and I am sure that Jores is flattered too," Juric told bold.dk. "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."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
