Liverpool and United are both expected to keep tabs on Fenerbahce defender Simon Kjaer.

The Premier League giants have been closely linked with Kjaer this season.

Turkish sports newspaper Fanatik recently reported that the Yellow Canaries will accept offers that match their valuation of £10 million for Kjaer.

Per the source, Liverpool, PSG, Monaco, AC Milan and Valencia are also reported to have made an enquiry for the defender.

Kjaer has been in impressive form this season and was named in the Europa League Team of the Group Stage.

The Denmark international featured in the Fenerbahce side that topped Group A ahead of Manchester United.
