Manchester City have also been linked, but BBC Sport understands the club are reluctant to pay the reported 180m euro (£160m) asking price.Vadim Vasilyev said Monaco have had several “serious” enquiries.

But he added: “We are in discussions over a contract extension with Kylian and we hope to reach an agreement.”Earlier in July, Monaco accused some of Europe’s top clubs of making illegal approaches to their teenage striker.

The Ligue 1 club said in a statement that “important European clubs” had made contact with the France international without their permission.Monaco may ask world governing body Fifa and the French league to consider disciplinary action but Fifa has said it is yet to receive a complaint.BBC Sport understands Manchester City are the only English club accused.
