Leipzig have already added Portuguese and ex-Frankfurt marksman Andre Silva and young Ajax talent Brian Brobbey in their roster but now may part ways with Sørloth, according to recent reports.

The 25-year-old has eyes on him from Italian giants AC Milan, according to Norwegian journalist Andreas Korssund. The Rossoneri are reportedly interested in signing him on a one-season loan, in order to support veteran strikers Oliver Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

AS Roma are the other Italian club, who are reportedly interested in Sørloth. The Giallorossi are undergoing a season of transition after Jose Mourinho took over the reins. According to Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Angelo Mangiante, he is being scouted by Roma talent scouts ahead of the new season.

So far, nothing has materialized between the Italian clubs and Die Roten Bullen.

The former Trabzonspor and Crystal Palace attacker scored 6 times last season in 37 appearances for Leipzig across all competitions.
