Abuja - Germany Bundesliga side Hamburg are closely monitoring out of contract Nigerian full back Leon Balogun, with a view of moving for the 26 year old.
Hamburg are desperately seeking defensive reinforcement after narrowly beating relegation via the playoffs and Balogun is reportedly top of their priority list.
