RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch is still not certain if he can rely on the services of Marcel Sabitzer or if the Austrian is going to move this month.


Meanwhile, the club are being linked with a talent, who is turning a few heads in Russia.
According to Russian outlet Sport Express, RasenBallsport Leipzig could be looking to sign 18-year-old Dynamo Moscow midfielder Arsen Zakharayan.

The Russian became the third youngest player to appear at the under-21 Euros this year, on the back of a breakthrough campaign with Dynamo, scoring 3 goals and setting up another 5. In three appearances in this Russian Premier League season, Arsen has a goal and assist to his name already.

Zakharayan has a contract with Dynamo up to 2024, which could mean Dynamo negotiating boldly or even opting to keep their homegrown talent for another season. A move this summer does not seem likely. However, there is a release clause present in his contract, which Leipzig could be looking to benefit from.
