RB Leipzig confirm Elmas signing

Eljif Elmas will join RB Leipzig from Napoli on January 1.
RB Leipzig have confirmed the signing of Eljif Elmas from SSC Napoli.

The midfielder has signed a contract until 2028 with Die Roten Bullen.

"By securing the signing of Eljif Elmas, we’ve managed to fill an important position in our attack following Emil Forsberg’s departure. We’ve been monitoring Eljif for a while because he’s an exciting prospect," said RB Leipzig sporting director Rouven Schröder.

"He looks like the full package, will be a perfect fit for the team personality-wise and he’ll be able to help the team straightaway with his quality."
