Dortmund youngster on Barca radar

14th April 2019, 12:31 by Bobbie Jackson

Barcelona have reportedly been watching Borussia Dortmund forward Alexander Isak as they consider a summer bid.

The 19-year-old was courted by some of Europe's biggest names after breaking on to the senior stage with AIK in his homeland.

Isak netted 10 times in 24 appearances in 2016-17 and subsequently earned a move to Borussia Dortmund in January 2017.

He turned out 13 times for the German outfit, scoring once, before agreeing to spend 2018-19 on loan with Willem II.

The striker has continued to impress in Holland with 11 goals in as many Eredivisie outings and that form has led to interest from Barcelona.

Reports claim the Spanish giants had scouts in attendance to watch Isak in action in the loss to Ajax last weekend.

But the Catalan outfit will face competition if they decide to make a move in the summer with Chelsea also keeping tabs on his progress.
