Jean-Kevin Augustin continues to cause concern for RB Leipzig. According to Kicker, a dissatisfaction with the striker has been growing within the squad over the last couple of months.

Augustin has been criticized for his lack of discipline numerous times since he joined RB Leipzig from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017. And, apparently, a group of leading players at the club have grown increasingly frustrated with the 21-year-old because he isn't living up to what is expected from him as a professional.

RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick says the frustration with Augustin is "comprehensible and justified".

"The question is: what are his reasons? It could be that there are reasons that even I don't know about," Rangnick told Kicker.

If the situation doesn't improve quickly, Augustin could be on the move soon. Reportedly, Everton are interested in signing the striker.
