Barcelona are reportedly one of many clubs keeping tabs on Germany international Lukas Klostermann.
According to the football transfer rumours in Spanish media, Barcelona are eyeing move for RB Leipzig right-back Lukas Klostermann.
The Germany international was signed by RB Leipzig in August 2014 from VfL Bochum for a fee of 1 million euros. The 23-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.
This season, Klostermann has scored 2 goals and provided 2 assists in 16 appearances for RB Leipzig.
The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Germany.
Lukas Klostermann has represented Germany at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 36 caps and scoring 2 goals, before making his senior international debut in March 2019. As a member of Germany national football team, Klostermann won 8 caps.
The Germany international has impressed in the Bundesliga this season and is starting to attract the interest of bigger clubs.
Barcelona have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
The right-back can also play as a full-back, offering Ernesto Valverde a different option should he change his formation at Barcelona.
According to Football Espana, “Barcelona are tracking RB Leipzig full-back and Germany international Lukas Klostermann, report El Mundo Deportivo. He is said by the report to be an alternative to Bayern Munich defender and fellow Germany international Joshua Kimmich, who may prove to be unattainable for Barca. The 23-year-old enjoyed a strong tournament at this summer’s European Under-21 Championships and Diario AS reported that Atletico Madrid were heavily monitoring his performances throughout the competition in Italy. Having been capped eight times by the German national team this year, Klostermann is growing in demand and Arsenal have also been reported to be monitoring his situation.”
