The German under-21 international has been a huge presence in the midfield of FC Augsburg since joining them last summer, and he played a pivotal role in their hugely impressive campaign which saw them finish eighth in the Bundesliga.
However, his impressive performances this season have brought him to the attentions of a number of Premier League sides, who are hoping to take advantage of him having just one-year left on his current deal with the club.
Aston Villa have been credited with the heaviest interest, but the likes of Hull City, Southampton, Stoke and newly promoted Leicester City are all said to be monitoring his situation too.
Jamie MacLaurin of OmniSports Management, who represent the player in Britain, insisted no decision had yet been made about Vogt.
“Kevin has had an exceptional season, and we can’t deny that off the back of that there are a number of clubs who have expressed an interest,” he told Sky Sports.
“However, there are no bids on the table and until that point, we cannot say anymore.”
