After reaching agreement with ‘keeper Ter Stegen, Barça now turn interest to Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gündogan [AS]

Victor Valdes’ successor has been identified and secured: Marc-André ter Stegen will play for Barcelona next season.

Spanish daily AS have confirmed that Barcelona have reached an agreement to sign the young keeper from Mönchengladbach, and that he will join up with the Catalans next summer as Valdes makes way.

And having successfully secured one Bundesliga signature, AS claim Barcelona have kept their sights on the German league, namely on Dortmund’s box-to-boxer Ilkay Gündogan.

AS report that sporting director Zubizarreta may have even been to watch him this last week, such is the extent of their interest; and at just 23 he is seen as a perfect profile for the club’s regeneration process.
