Leeds defender Pontus Jansson has attracted a host of Premier League clubs this season, according to reports.

Jansson joined Leeds last summer on a season-long loan and signed for the Championship side permanently in February in a £3.5million deal.

The 26-year-old has been a rock in the heart of Leeds' defence this season, attracting interest from the Premier League in the process.

Swedish newspaper Expressen claim top-flight giants Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham are all keen on signing the former Malmo and Torino defender.

The trio of clubs - who make up the top three of the Premier League - have all reportedly made enquiries for the Sweden international.

Southampton have also been linked with Jansson as they look to replace Virgil van Dijk, but Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs are said to be more appealing options.

Jansson's agent Martin Dahlin has opened the door to a move this summer as his client sets his sights on a switch to the Premier League.

Dahlin told Expressen: “He has set his sights on playing in the Premier League next season, that much I can say.

"But right now he focuses solely on Leeds… interest is high but you will not get me to say specific clubs.”
