This week’s edition of SportBild explained that Yussuf Poulsen wants to leave RB Leipzig in the summer and he’s already asked approval from the Bundesliga side for an exit.

It was stated that he could ‘probably go to England’ where Newcastle United are believed to be one of the clubs interested in the Denmark international as Steve Bruce is also courting the striker.

TV2 in Denmark got in touch with the 25-year-old’s agent, Poul-Erik Petersen.

Regarding claims of Poulsen asking the German club to approve his wish to leave, the representative said: “There’s nothing in this context that has anything to do even remotely with him.”

Poul-Erik Petersen was further quizzed about claims of him being in contact with clubs from the Premier League and was asked if the Magpies are interested in his client.

“There has not been no such contact with the club. I can categorically reject it,” he explained.

Poulsen has seen his playing time restricted this year and has made only one start in the league in 2020.

Although Poul-Erik Petersen admitted the attacker is happy with Leipzig, he stressed the situation could change if the Dane is forced to accept a substitute’s role at the club.

“It is an absolute top club in Europe and they are in the Champions League. There has to be competition like that somewhere. He has had that challenge before. I can’t say it more clearly than Yussuf loves to be in Leipzig, and that’s basically what he feels,” the agent stressed.

“But if the situation is still the way it is, then it is logical that he will not be a ‘reserve of honour’.”
