RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche has confirmed that he's keeping an eye on Paris Saint-Germain's Tanguy Kouassi.

"Of course, he's an interesting guy. He has already played a few games and scored a few goals for PSG. We'll just have to see how things develop," Krösche said in an interview with Bild.

With Dayot Upamecano considered very likely to leave Leipzig in the summer, Kouassi could be brought in as a replacement.

At the age of 17, the centre-back has made 13 appearances for the French capital club with three goals and one assist to his name.

Kouassi's contract expires at the end of the season.
