Alexander Sorloth completes €20m move to RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig have completed the signing of Norway striker Alexander Sorloth on a five-year deal.

24-year-old Sorloth joins the Bundesliga side for €20m plus €2m in variables. He will wear the number 19 shirt.

Sorloth was on loan at Trabzonspor from Crystal Palace last season with the Turkish club having an option to buy.

However, the official statement says that the transfer fee will be split half-and-half (€10m each) between the two clubs.

Furthermore, Trabzonspor will receive 20% of any profit Leipzig receive if they ever sell Sorloth.

Sorloth was the top scorer in Turkey last season and bagged 33 goals in all competitions for Trabzonspor.

With Timo Werner joining Chelsea and former loanee Patrik Schick moving to Leverkusen, Leipzig needed new strikers.

They have added Hwang Hee-chan from Red Bull Salzburg and can now count on the services of Sorloth.
