Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are just two of the sides battling for Simon Kjaer's signature.

The Palermo defender has been on the radar of a number of top clubs around Europe after impressing for the Rosanero, and both United and Spurs are in talks over a possible summer move for the 21-year-old.

Kjaer has also impressed potential suitors with a couple of fine World Cup performances, although he will miss today's clash with Japan after picking up two bookings in the opening matches.

Manchester City and Wolfsburg are also thought to be interested in the centre back, who has £12.5 million price-tag placed on his head.

"I know of talks with the two Manchester clubs, Tottenham and Wolfsburg," said club president Maurizio Zamparini.

"When certain offers arrive, it's necessary for the player to leave. A couple of quite important offers have come in. We are discussing them, then I will call the player. Anyway, I think that in the end Kjaer and Cavani will leave."

Palermo signed Kjaer as a teenager from his homeland club Midtjylland, paying €4 million for his services back in 2008.

The former Danish U19 Player of the Year has been a regular for the Serie 'A' side since making the move, but it appears he's heading for the Stadio Renzo Barbera exit door this summer.

With a string of clubs willing to make offers for the player, Kjaer is set to have options this summer. Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Harry Redknapp will hope the lure of the Premier League will see the defender make his move to the Premier League.
