RB Leipzig consider Alexander Sorloth to replace Schick

RB Leipzig are considering Alexander Sorloth as a replacement for Patrik SchickBILD reports.

The German club have been unable to agree terms with Roma for Schick, who enjoyed a good season with Die Roten Bullen.

Sorloth, 24, has been in outstanding form for Trabzonspor on loan from Crystal Palace, scoring 33 goals in the 2019-20 season.

The Turks have an option to buy Sorloth for €6m and could make a quick profit by selling him.

Sorloth, a Norway international, struggled after joining Palace from FC Midtjylland in January 2018.

In 16 league appearances for the Eagles, he failed to score, leading to a loan spell at Gent in Belgium.

But in the past year, he flourished for Trabzonspor, becoming their all-time top-scoring foreign player in a single season.

A tall, fast and strong striker, he would be a cheaper alternative to Schick, who Roma want €25m for.
