RB Leipzig's Hannes Wolf is interested in going out on loan this month in the search for more first-team action, according to Kicker.

The 20-year-old has been limited to just 14 minutes of Bundesliga football this season after returning from a fractured leg towards the end of 2019.

Wolf faces fierce competition for places from the likes of Marcel Sabitzer, Emil Forsberg and Christopher Nkunku, and the midfielder is understood to be worried that he will not get the first-team football he needs to be called up for Austria's squad for Euro 2020.

RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche is aware of Wolf's concerns, but the problem is that Matheus Cunha, who has attracted interest from Hertha BSC, and Ademola Lookman, who has been linked with Newcastle United, are also looking to leave the club this month, and they will not all be allowed to go.

Wolf joined RB Leipzig from RB Salzburg in a €12 million deal last summer.
