Alexander Sørloth could make his first start for RB Leipzig against Hertha BSC in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
"'Alex' did very well in training on Wednesday, scoring six or seven goals when we were playing eight versus eight. He's a candidate to start against Berlin," RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann told Bild.
The Norwegian striker has made three substitute appearances following his move from Trabzonspor.
Most recently, he watched RB Leipzig's 2-0 win over Turkish side Basaksehir in the Champions League from the bench.
