Christoph Klarer (born 14 June 2000 in Böheimkirchen) is an Austrian football player.



Klarer started his career at SV Böheimkirchen. In January 2011 he moved to the youth team of SK Rapid Wien, where he later also played in the academy. For the 2016/17 season, he moved to England to join the youth team of Southampton FC. After two seasons with the Under-18 side, he moved up to the Southampton Under-23 squad for the 2018/19 season, having already played his first game for them in March 2018.

He returned to Austria on loan in January 2020, moving to Bundesliga side SKN St. Pölten.[1] He made his debut for SKN in the Bundesliga in February 2020, when he was in the starting eleven against FC Admira Wacker Mödling on matchday 19 of the 2019/20 season. By the end of the loan, he had made 13 Bundesliga appearances.

After the end of the loan, he initially returned to England for the 2020/21 season. In October 2020, however, he left Southampton for good and moved to Germany to join second division side Fortuna Düsseldorf, where he signed a contract until June 2024.[2]
