Tottenham target Sorloth seals €20m move to RB Leipzig as Werner replacement


Alexander Sorloth Trabzonspor Fenerbahce

Tottenham target Alexander Sorloth has signed for RB Leipzig in a reported€20 million (£18m/$23m) deal agreed with Crystal Palace and Trabzonspor, the Bundesliga side announced on Tuesday.

It was in Turkey that the Norway international really impressed, smashing 33 goals in 49 appearances in all competitions for the club, who were understandably keen to count on his services for 2020-21.

Leipzig, however, ultimately prevailed in a transfer negotiated between both the Premier League and Super Lig clubs, despite Trabzonspor presidentAhmet Agaoglu claiming publicly that Spurs were also involved in talks to define Sorloth's future.

"New signing in attack!Die Roten Bullen have signed attackerAlexander Sorloth, effective immediately," Leipzig said in a statement released on the club's official website.

"RB Leipzig have reached an agreementwithCrystal PalaceandTrabzonsporfor a transfer for the24-year-old. The Norway international has signed afive-year contractuntil 2025 and will wear the No 19 shirt."

In Trabzonspor's subsequent declaration to the Turkish stock market - obligatory for transfer dealings in the country - details of Sorloth's transfer were released.

Under the terms of the agreementLeipzig willpay €20m, split between the two 'selling' clubs, as well as a further€2m (£1.8m/$2.3m) in performance-releated bonuses.The Bundesliga side also committed to paying 20 per cent of any profit made on a future sale involving Sorloth.

Trabzonspor president Agaoglu lastweek confirmed that hisside had reached an agreement with RB Leipzig forSorloth."Within the framework of an agreement that is unique in Turkish football history, the player will be transferred to the Leipzig club,"he said.

The Norwegian will be tasked with filling the space in the Leipzig starting line-up left by Timo Werner, who left for Chelsea prior to the club's involvement in the latter stages of the Champions League this summer.
