    The 26-year-old enjoyed a hugely impressive first campaign in the Premier League, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists in 33 appearances for Thomas Frank’s side.

    As a result, it’s no surprise that a number of clubs are weighing up a move.

    Man United are in the market for a new striker with uncertainty over the futures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony Martial.

    With Edinson Cavani also leaving the club last term, it means that the search for a frontman could gather pace in the coming weeks.

    Newcastle are looking for another option up front to provide competition for places with Callum Wilson and Chris Wood as Eddie Howe looks to kick on this term.

    West Ham are in the market for a striker as well as they aim to reduce the workload on Michail Antonio, while, Leeds are looking for cover for Patrick Bamford following his injury woes over the last 12 months.

    It’s reported that Brentford are reluctant to lose their star man this summer, particularly after losing Christian Eriksen.

    The midfielder completed a move to Manchester United earlier this week following a six-month spell with Thomas Frank’s side.
