The agent for Emil Forsberg says the Liverpool target cannot be guaranteed to remain with RB Leipzig this month, despite their incredible start to the season.

The newly-promoted German club sit second in the Bundesliga during its winter break, having lost just once during the first half of their maiden top-flight campaign.

Key to their success has been Swedish international Forsberg, a £3million signing from Malmo in 2015, who has bagged five goals and created nine others in his 15 appearances thus far this term.

That has attracted renewed interest from Jürgen Klopp, with Anfield scouts heading to Germany to make checks on a player who first came to the Liverpool chief's attention over two years ago, during his time with Borussia Dortmund.

And with the Reds ready to strengthen in January if the right option becomes available, they have turned their attention towards Forsberg - having grown frustrated in their chase for Christian Pulisic.

RBL boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has stated that, with his side challenging for the European places, he doesn't expect to lose any of his players this month.

However, Forsberg's representative has refused to commit the 24-cap Swede's future to the German upstarts.

"I can’t promise that Emil will stay in Leipzig this winter," Hasan Cetinkaya, is quoted as telling Bild.

Previously Cetinkaya had revealed that he has already held talks with "major clubs", over a potential future move for Forsberg.

“I have already been in meetings with major clubs regarding Forsberg," he added.

“One must not forget that RB are also becoming a big club. They have done fantastic, fighting for the title and heading towards the Champions League.”

Forsberg is contracted to RBL until 2021 but Cetinkaya says he will seek talks with the club, to discuss what the future holds for his client.

"It's about what Leipzig plans for him,” he added. "I will seek talks with sporting director [Ralf] Rangnick in the next few days."
