Man City are also thought to be interested in snapping up the Norwegian international with Pep Guardiola heaping praise on the talented forward.
"To score that number of goals at his age is not easy. He's 20 years old and the numbers speak for themselves," he said.
"When that happens it's because he can score with the right, the left, via counterattacks, in the box. He's a fantastic striker, everyone knows it.
"The only thing I can say is that he is an exceptional striker. With his age, he is an exceptional striker. He's a fantastic player - that's all."
