Former Barcelona youth product Ilaix Moriba should stay in Leipzig, according to Kicker. Moriba was brought in from Spain for €16 million in 2021. He then played on loan at Valencia this past season before returning to Leipzig in the summer. Amid rumors of a potential move to Crystal Palace, it's a likely bet that Moriba will stay on under Domenico Tedesco.

However, the midfielder is struggling to get any playing time in this deep Leipzig squad. A crowded group of midfielders are ahead of Moriba in the rotation, but Leipzig are still prepared to hold onto the 19-year-old. Moriba's contract expires in 2026.
