The agent of Kevin De Bruyne has confirmed that a number of top European clubs are showing interest in signing the prolific VfL Wolfsburg midfielder during the January transfer window, according to Bild.
It is understood that both Manchester City and PSG have already made formal approaches, whilst Bayern Munich are also understood to be keen in acquiring the services of the Belgian international.
Since arriving from Premier League giants, Chelsea last January for £19 million, the 23-year-old, who made four appearances for Belgium during last summer’s World Cup, has gone on to solidify himself as one of Wolfsburg’s most valuable performers.
Super De Bruyne
In the past year alone De Bruyne has scored nine goals in 43 appearances for the 2009 Bundesliga champions, whilst also showing his midfield masterclass by supplying his teammates with 20 assists.
Although the Wolves are desperate to keep hold of their most prized asset, the Belgian’s glamorising displays for his parent club have attracted the interest of Bayern, who are keen to rejuvenate their ageing midfield.

In an interview with PSG fan-site, De Bruyne’s agent, Patrick De Koster played down that neither Manchester City or PSG have made an offer, but confirmed solid interest from the German champions.
The owner of J&S Belgium Sportsmanagment told Canal supporters: “I do not have any contact with either Manchester or Paris. I know that a few clubs are interested in him. Bayern have also recently joined this list.”
"I do not have any contact with either Manchester or Paris. I know that a few clubs are interested in him. Bayern have also recently joined this list.”
Despite confirming interest in the 23-year-old, De Koster has admitted that it would be “very unlikely” that the midfielder would leave Wolfsburg having only signed a six year deal last January.
Deal or no deal
The Wolves also see the Drongen-born playmaker as the main man to secure Champions League football for the Green and Whites and thus are unprepared to listen to any offers from suitors at this time.
However, the 49-year-old has hinted that interested parties should refrain from putting away their wallets just yet by insisting that anything is possible in the world of football.
De Koster went on to say: “It is extremely unlikely that he will be leaving the club this winter. Kevin is comfortable in Wolfsburg. However, everything can happen very quickly in football. What is true at 10am can be untrue at 10:30am.
"When a good offer comes in, it is important that we comer to a sensible conclusion.”
