Red Bull Salzburg starlet Erling Braut Haaland is considering a move to RB Leipzig, according to Sky Sports.

The young striker has been linked with clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal following a fantastic start to the season that has seen him find the net 23 times in 17 appearances.


Apparently, RB Leipzig are very much in the race for Haaland's signature as well. RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann is a big admirer of the 19-year-old and believes he would be a 'perfect fit' for the German club, as per the report.

RB Leipzig have managed to sign a number of players from their Austrian sister club in the past, including Naby Keita, Dayot Upamecano, Amadou Haidara and Hannes Wolf.

Haaland made the switch to Salzburg from Norwegian side Molde FK back in January.
