Barcelona are reportedly scouting RB Leipzig's Timo Werner, Dayot Upamecano and Angelino following their impressive performances for Julian Nagelsmann's side this season.

Barcelona are reportedly keeping tabs on the futures of RB Leipzig trio Dayot Upamecano, Timo Werner and Angelino.

Leipzig have enjoyed an impressive Bundesliga campaign prior to the league's postponement due to the coronavirus outbreak, as they sit third in the table five points behind leaders Bayern Munich.

The futures of several of their top players have been brought into question recently, as Werner continues to be heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, and Upamecano is allegedly on the radar of Arsenal.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona technical director Eric Abidal sent his assistant Ramon Planes to scout the trio in Leipzig's Champions League last-16 second-leg clash with Tottenham Hotspur, in which Julian Nagelsmann's side cruised to a 4-0 aggregate victory over the North London club.

The report also claims that Barca intend to strengthen their centre-back, full-back and attacking options ahead of next season, and the Leipzig players are said to be attractive options for Quique Setien's side.

However, scouting opportunities have been severely limited due to postponements following the outbreak of COVID-19.
