The agent of Josko Gvardiol has revealed the RB Leipzig defender has signed no pre-agreement with Chelsea amid reports linking Chelsea with the Croatian international.

Chelsea tried to sign Gvardiol in the summer and are believed to be keen to try and secure a deal next year, while the likes of Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City and Juventus are all interested too.

Speaking to Sky Sports Germany, Gvardiol’s agent, Marjan Sisic, said: “Regarding a possible transfer in the summer of 2023 we are not in a hurry.

“I can also make it clear that there are no pre-agreements with any clubs. For sure, a lot of top clubs are informed about him but Josko has a long-term contract in Leipzig.

“Josko feels totally happy in Leipzig. His development is amazing and RB are playing very well under Marco Rose.”
