Barcelona and Real Madrid are keeping tabs on PSV Eindhoven midfielder Kevin Strootman, according to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.
The Spanish giants have been alerted of the player’s potential and have had the player watched on several occasions this season.
The 22-year-old is considered a key member of the side at Philips Stadium and has four years left on his deal with the Eredivisie side.
The player, who came through the youth ranks at Sparta Rotterdam, is already considered a first team regular at Netherlands national team and started both 2014 World Cup qualifiers under Louis van Gaal.
Since joining PSV Eindhoven from Utrecht in a €7.5 million deal in July 2011, Strootman has scored 3 goals in 34 league appearances for the Dutch giants.
The left-footed midfielder is considered one of the hottest prospects in European football and it is easy to understand why he is currently followed by Barcelona and Real Madrid.
