Aleksandar Dragovic believes he is ready to leave Dynamo Kiev with as many as 23 clubs – including Manchester United and Liverpool – scouting his progress.

The 24-year-old centre half was closely linked with a move to Old Trafford during the January transfer window and recently admitted to Austrian outlet Die Presse that he found it difficult to push thoughts of a transfer away from Dynamo to the back of his mind.

Interest in Dragovic has grown, however, with Nachrichten reporting that representatives from United, Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Inter Milan, Wolfsburg and Shakhtar Donetsk were among those present during Austria's international friendly with Bosnia-Herzegovina on Tuesday to watch over the defender.

The same publication carries quotes from the defender where he states: "We have seen in the last six months that I feel ready."

However, Dragovic went on to insist that he is not desperate to leave the Ukrainian side, saying he will wait until there is a formal offer on the table before deciding his next step.

"I feel very, very good at Kiev. You need to have the feeling that [clubs reportedly interested] really want you. That is the most important thing. Facts matter to me, and as long as there is nothing ready to sign on the table, any thoughts about it are pointless."

United are expected to make signing another centre half a priority at the end of the season. In recent days, the club's long-standing interest in Borussia Dortmund skipper Mats Hummels has emerged once again following suggestions he had promised Louis van Gaal he would sign for the club this summer.

Hummels has however responded to such reports and rubbished claims there is any agreement in place. "Just to be clear. This alleged 'promise' is simply an invention... and that is saying it nicely," the Germany international tweeted.
