Roma, AC Milan and Monaco could face competition from Liverpool who have also been closely linked with Kjaer.

Turkish-Football recently reported that the Reds have been targeting Kjaer after pulling out of the race to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

The Denmark international married Eline Gollert in Rome, Italy over the weekend.

A source close to Kjaer revealed to Turkish-Football that while there is interest, currently there are no official bids on the table.

Kjaer will hold talks with Fenerbahce regarding his future after returning to Istanbul following his honeymoon.

As things stand the 29-year-old will report for pre-season training with Fenerbahce.

Kjaer has another two-years remaining on his contract and Fenerbahce value the Denmark international centre back as being worth £17.5 million [€20m].
