Chelsea target Jores Okore has attracted interest from many clubs across Europe, according to his agent, Nikola Juric.

Sky Sports reports how the 20-year-old Nordsjaelland defender has already played for the Denmark national team, and his performances in the Champions League this season have attracted even more admiring glances.

Last month, Okore revealed that Chelsea are in fact his favourite football team, and that the opportunity to move to Stamford Bridge, linking up with Roberto Di Matteo's side, would be a dream come true.

Whilst the Blues are yet to make an approach for the centre-back, Okore's representative says that he has received tentative enquiries, but his client is still waiting for a "serious" offer.

"There has always been interest, but it has become more intense after the Champions League matches," Juric told Sporten.dk. "The sporting aspect is the most important.

"Playing time is very important. The club should adore him and you should be able to notice that they want him.

"It's nice with the interest, but we agreed that we shall only discuss it when something serious comes."

Okore has already had one opportunity to catch Di Matteo's eye, when he featured for Nordsjaelland in the 4-0 Champions League group stage defeat against Chelsea in Copenhagen in October.

The Danish outfit did hold their own for the first 75 minutes, with the Danish defender particularly impressing to show why he is rated so highly.
