RB Leipzig are understood to be close to signing Christoph Baumgartner from Hoffenheim.

According to Kicker, the 23-year-old Austrian attacker's move to the Red Bull Arena is imminent.

Leipzig will have to pay around €24 million to land the Hoffenheim star.

Per Kicker, the Austria international will not be brought in as a possible replacement for Dominik Szoboszlai, who has been linked with a move away from Leipzig, but as an addition to the attacking midfield.
