Borussia Mönchengladbach centre-back Matthias Ginter is attracting interest from some of Europe’s top clubs, according to Sky Sports.
Ginter was one of the bright sparks in Germany’s European Championship campaign, with commanding performances alongside Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger.
Barcelona, Real Madrid and Athletico Madrid have all expressed their interest in signing the 26-year-old.
“It’s true that it’s the turn of the top clubs,” said Sky reporter and transfer expert Marc Behrenbeck on the Transfer Update Show.
“We already reported during the Euros that FC Barcelona had asked about him. “
Barcelona and Madrid are looking to replace Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos, while Atletico are also in the market for a defender.
However, there is also interest from AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen.
Concrete discussions have taken place with Leverkusen, who are willing to pay €20 million for Ginter.
The injury to Edmond Tapsoba has left the club in desperate need of defensive reinforcements.
Ginter’s contract runs until 2022, and Gladbach will not want one of their star players to leave for free next summer.
According to Sky, there has not yet been a significant breakthrough, and no club is in advanced negotiations. The deal won’t be decided in the coming days.
