RB Leipzig are still hoping to keep Angelino and Patrik Schick, who spent last season on loan at Red Bull Arena from Manchester City and AS Roma respectively.

Both players are said to be keen on staying, but 'Die Roten Bullen' are yet to reach agreements with their clubs.

"Our goal is to find solutions with Patrik Schick and Angelino. But on the other hand, I also say: We have a very good squad. We don't have sleepless night as far as our squad situation is concerned," RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche told Kicker and added:

"At least, we are closer to finding a solution with Manchester City than with AS Roma," he added.

RB Leipzig would prefer to take the two players on loan again, but Roma want to sell the striker for a fee, reported to be €25 million, which isn't "feasible" for Leipzig, according to Krösche.

Should RB Leipzig fail to reach an agreement with Roma, they could bring in Alexander Sørloth (Trabzonspor, on loan from Crystal Palace) or Darwin Nunez (Almeria) instead.
