Trabzonspor announce RB Leipzig bid for Alexander Sorloth

RB Leipzig have made their first official bid for Trabzonspor striker Alexander Sorloth.

In an official statement posted on their website, the Turkish club announced that an offer has been made.

They added that the board of directors are now evaluating the offer.

Journalist Hasan Tüncel reveals that Leipzig’s offer is €20m plus €4m in bonuses.

Sorloth has been offered a five-year contract worth €3.3m guaranteed per season.

His contract would include a €70m release clause.

24-year-old Sorloth was the top scorer in Turkey last season while on loan at Trabzonspor from Crystal Palace.

Trabzonspor had the option to buy Sorloth for €6m, which they appear to have used.

Leipzig want Sorloth and his goalscoring ability after losing Timo Werner to Chelsea earlier in the summer.

Despite recent reports that he might be too costly at ‘over €20m’, it has not deterred Leipzig from making an offer.

Sorloth joined Crystal Palace from FC Midtjylland in January 2018 but struggled for goals and was loaned to Gent a year later.

But it was with Trabzonspor that he showed his best form, scoring 33 goals in 44 appearances last season.
