Fabian Giefer: Thought to be attracting interest from several clubs

The 22-year-old goalkeeper, who has a year remaining on his contract at the Esprit Arena, is believed to be on the radar of a number of clubs, including Everton and Bundesliga side Schalke.

The Germany Under-21 international, a summer arrival at Dusseldorf from Bayer Leverkusen last year, has produced a string of impressive displays for the Rhine club this season.

Former Bundesliga top scorer Allofs, who is on the club's board, says any interested suitors would have to offer at least €5m (£4.2m) to pique Fortuna's interest.

He told the Rheinische Post newspaper: "If there is any serious interest in Fabian Giefer, any starting bid would need to be beyond €5m. Otherwise this is nothing of our concern.

"In the end we would always have to insist there is still a valid deal existing between Fabian Giefer and Fortuna Dusseldorf."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
