Barcelona's international scout Ariedo Braida was at the Bundesliga game between Schalke 04 and Bayer Leverkusen on Friday, as first revealed by BILD.
According to the German newspaper, Braida was present to cast an eye over two potential Barça signings: Leon Goretzka and Jonathan Tah.
Asked about Goretzka, Braida said: "Without doubt he is a great player. But it's too soon for Barcelona."
Therefore, Goretzka, who scored a free-kick fior Schalke in the game, does not look to be close to a move to Camp Nou.
He is out of contract next summer, though, and could instead be set for a move to Bayern Munich, with an announcement on his future expected in January.
Braida also said: "I travel all over the world in search of the best talent. But our demands are so high..."
