VG: Spurs-linked Alexander Sorloth is joining RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig are set to sign Alexander Sorloth from Trabzonspor, according to VG.

Only formalities remain before the 24-year-old can call himself a Leipzig player.

It is added that Sorloth could already be on a plane to Germany with his agent Morten Wivestad.

Trabzonspor confirmed on Saturday that they were in talks with the Bundesliga side about Sorloth.

The Turkish club’s president said recently that he was willing to let Sorloth go for around €30m.

It is not clear yet how much Leipzig would pay, but it could be a new club record for the Germans.

Tottenham have also been linked with the Norway striker and Jose Mourinho refused to deny interest in him at the weekend.

Sorloth was a success on loan at Trabzonspor from Crystal Palace last season, leading Turkey’s scoring charts with 33 goals.

Trabzonspor had the option to make his stay permanent for €6m and now stand to make a huge profit.
