Ernesto Valverde has brought Malcom, Clement Lenglet, Arthur and Arturo Vidal to the Camp Nou so far this summer but Kampl’s exploits after arriving at Leipzig from Bayer Leverkusen last summer didn’t go unnoticed, with Catalan giants Barca, along with rivals Atletico Madrid, showing interest.
The 27-year-old winger quickly cemented his place in Ralf Rangnick’s starting XI.
Teamtalk say any chase for Kampl could rest on Leipzig’s pursuit of Everton star Ademola Lookman, who spent the last half of last season on loan at the Red Bull Arena.
In his first game with Leipzig, Lookman scored the winning goal in the away game against Borussia Monchengladbach after coming on as a late substitute. He scored a total of five goals in 11 appearances for the Bundesliga side.
The German side have been told to pay £28million plus add-ons to land the Toffees winger and Leipzig would then reportedly sanction the sale of Kampl.
